Zen Ultra Lounge opened last week --- but it's not related to Zen Asian Bistro & Sushi, one of several restaurants suddenly springing up in the northern suburb, in this case, in Westminster at 11940 Bradburn Boulevard.
Zen Ultra Lounge took over the space at 940 Lincoln Street that had been home to DC10 until this past August. And the venue has added a restaurant to the mix, but it's not Asian, as you might expect. It's Organicity, an offshoot of a concept that got its start in Dallas, and like the place run there by Gino and Olina Nikolini, it specializes in organic, eclectic Mediterranean cuisine. Organicity at Zen features a happy hour menu of tapas (veggie dolmas, spanakopita) available from 4-7 p.m. Tuesday-Friday; dinner from 4-10 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday (Greek salad, lamb chops); and late-night plates on weekends from 10 p.m. until 1:30 a.m. And then there are the "yoga & fitness spa cleansers," including wild bitter greens -- "a natural liver cleanser."
