Laid-back yet classy Zimzala-which means "free-spirited person who finds peace with the sand between their toes"-is set, appropriately, within HB's groovy new Shorebreak Hotel. Executive chef Vincent Muraco has collaborated with award-winning chef Joyce Goldstein to create a sublime Mediterranean menu that covers saffron seafood soup, Portuguese crab cakes, lamb kebabs, chicken tagine, flatbreads and a perfect mezze plate. The drinks list is a winner, too.
