  1. We went to Zea and liked it- very neat inside- service was VERY good- food was very good- I had a salad, mom had fried shrimp-she did n't like the tartar sauce and they brought cocktail sauce instead, Daughter had grilled salmon, Daughter boyfriend had duck- they also ordered duck empanadas- i didn't care for them but they liked them- very crowded- they have call ahead seating

      I've never heard of Zea. Where at Brookwood is it located? What's the cuisine?

        It is in the former location of Copper Grill. They are noted for their rotisserie cooked chicken. See:

        I have been once, had the chicken, and it was pretty good. I did not think that it is worth a special trip for, but if you are at the mall doing some shopping, it is a good option.
