Zeal Modern Eatery is a good restaurant in an area with quite a few really good restaurants. Zeal Owner/General Manager Scott Sawant invited the Atlanta Food Bloggers’ Society, of which I am a member, to dine for free at his cozy East Cobb eatery in exchange for our honest opinions. Scott is gracious host and hands on manager whose passion for service was evident. He seemed genuinely interested in our constructive criticism so I have very high hopes for this restaurant. In general, there are a few kinks to work out in this 8-month-old spot, but it shows a lot of promise.
We started our evening with super fresh oysters in honor of National Oyster Day. The starters here are the stars of the show for sure. The Tandoori Chicken and Lamb Skewers were a big hit at the table. For the entrees, I had a perfectly cooked, if a bit under-seasoned, grilled pork chop. Then for dessert, sampled the cheesecake, and the “Trio of Tarts;” strawberry, coconut/lime, and chocolate turtle. They were more mousse than tart, but delicious nonetheless!
