Food & Drink in Sweetwater


Select Local Merchants

Inventive combinations of locally sourced ingredients typify the fresh dishes that emerge from the kitchen at Zookini's. The cranberry burger brandishes ground beef mixed with dried cranberries and cream cheese, while the marinated margarita chicken rests on thick slices of ripe tomatoes. Pastas are all made in-house and serve as the foundation for the Zoo-preme carbonara and fettuccine alfredo. The eatery's eco-conscious, community-centered mentality carries over into the building itself, which is partially made from recycled materials, and the dining room walls bear the work of local artists.
