Sia's group dinner report

I had asked for feedback on this Duluth-Alpharetta (Atlanta suburbs) area restaurant...and received none...so thought I would throw in my two cents. This is a great place for a group dinner....very nice private room. We were about thirty and were comfortable....fifty would have been two many. The menu was set with a choice of entrees, and I have no idea what the prices were.....We started with passed-around apps: some fried oysters in a kind of aioli...served on a spoon, which makes a nice way to eat them without messing the hands. They also passed around some delicious crab-cream cheese fritters with a spicy orange sauce: delicious and guaranteed to only be about 6000 calories each..lol. The only low point of the dinner for me was the salad: arugula with pecans and some kind of feta: a little overdressed and a little too salty. Not horrible, but not great. For an entree I had the grouper with an ancho chili sauce: delicious! I tasted my friend's filet with blue cheese mashed potatoes: the potatoes were devine, and the filet would have been great if she hadn't ordered it well-done. The other choice was chicken of some sort, but no one at our table ordered it. Desert was a trio of three deserts: a beignet(ok if you like fried things), an orange cheesecake (served in a small cup), and a small creme brulee. Wonderful! The wines selected by our hosts were a Clos du Bois Merlot and a Ferrari-Carano chardonnay. Certainly drinkable. Once again, a very nice evening; very attractive location, and delicious food. Check it out, and don't let the suburban strip mall location fool you. There is some real creativity in the kitchen.
