Sabores del Plata Review

Sabores del Plata is a Uruguay inspired restaurant located at 6200 Buford Highway in Norcross, Georgia.  The restaurant is situated in a small retail space on the east side of Buford Hwy about 3 miles north of I-285.  Jim and Mary Ann Macie scouted out this place some weeks ago after reading a review by John Kessler in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.  Jim and Mary Ann thought it might be a good location for the next installment of the Hoochie Map Dancers dinner and wine tasting.  Before any restaurant is considered it must have a recommendation from a member.  Jim, Mary Ann, and their niece Polly checked out Sabores del Plata before making our reservations.  Jim also spoke with the owner about the menu and the group's BYOB needs.  Since this was Jim's recommendation, and Susan and I were riding along, we arrived early to get setup and meet with the restaurant staff before the other diners arrived. 

Uruguay, bordered by Brazil and Argentina is located on the Atlantic coast in South America.  Their main export is beef.  The language is Spanish and the majority of the population is of European descent.
