Seven Hens - Sandy Springs - Atlanta Georgia

You can find Seven Hens at 6615 Roswell Rd # 24a, Sandy Springs, GA 30328 in the Abernathy Square Publix Shopping Center right at the intersection of Abernathy Rd and Roswell Rd, North of the perimeter. This is a above average-sized shopping center with several food options including: Bawarchi Biryani Pointe, Ippolito's Italian, Mirage Persian, and the Publix anchor store. Parking is particularly busy at all hours so you may have to walk a bit from your parking space. Exit from the lot can be a bit difficult depending on your direction of travel so be careful, especially when pulling into traffic.





Seven Hens is fast-casual restaurant specializing in schnitzel - your basic pounded-flat chicken breast that is breaded and fried to perfection. At Seven Hens you can select from seven menu options to flavor the chicken in various ways - from ethnic, worldly cuisines to your basic Southern-fried chicken, served with sides, atop a salad or in a sandwich or wrap. The options are on the wall on boards or you can read from a short menu. Ordering is at the counter with these choices: American, Chinese, French, German, Indian, Italian, Mexican plus a seasonal style that rotates several times a year.




Both times I've eaten at Seven Hens I've had the curry with cucumber salad and sweet potato fries - this is quite the meal and very satisfying. There's a variety of seasonings available at the drink station where you can intensify the flavors or if you're not sure about what's prepared by the cooks, you can get the American and add various flavors to figure out what you like best. Personally I'd like to have a very hot/spicy version of the chicken, something like the Mexican only more Szechuan-style. Even the Indian to me could use a hint of ghost pepper to be over-the-top, but you guys know how I like the spice.



I've had occasion to meet one of the owners and I like his ideas behind the Seven Hens concept. I'll be sure to be back again-and-again.
