I happened to eat lunch at Zyng yesterday, the new upscale noodle place in Squirrel Hill that got a nice write-up in the P-G last Wednesday. My mini-review: nice concept, good looking place, friendly and prompt service, reasonbly priced. The food lacks a certain edge, like it's calculated to please. Overall: Zyng was a pleasant experience, but it didn't knock my socks off, and I'm not aching to go back. Is it a problem that the owners are entrepreneurs, not restauranteurs? I'm rarely one to ding people who are looking to take risks in business, but when it comes to new restaurants, it's not about the business. It's all about the food.
