new restaurant in Norcross -- Dalia's Mediterranean Grill

There was some concern when the GRW meetings moved from Decatur to Norcross that there would be no fun, interesting restaurants to have lunch at following the meetings. BUT! Check out Dalia's Grill, right next to the Mellow Mushroom, in a shopping center almost behind the Hilton where the GRW meetings are now taking place.

The url on their business card is no longer working (or not yet working? they opened two months ago) but they have a facebook page with their address.

They have the usual Mediterranean meat dishes (gyros, kabobs, etc.), but I'm here to tell you vegetarians about the salads. They had tabouli, hummus, baba ganoush, bowtie pasta with pesto, ziti with tuna, beet salad, cut fruit, stuffed grape leaves, Greek salad, Waldorf salad, macaroni with seafood, broccoli salad, spinach, cous cous, chick peas with fava beans, and Italian mix that had chick peas and kidney beans, green beans, carrots, olives and artichoke hearts.

Those are what was out *today*. They change them around and also have things like fried cauliflower.

I got the three-salad plate for $6.49, which included a sample of one of the other salads, and when I asked about the beet salad, the owner gave me a sample of that one, too. All delicious. The chick peas and fava beans might have been the best.

Lots of small tables, and outlet on the side where we sat, and the other owner told us they have wi-fi, when he saw that Bryonna had her laptop out.

Oh, and I didn't try any of the desserts, but they have baklava and tiramisu as well as a few others.

Very nice place, friendly owners. So we know there's at least one good restaurant up there!
