|Kalamatas now has two locations:
the original in the Glendale Center in the trendy
Green Hills neighborhood of Nashville, and our new restaurant in the recently renovated Brentwood Place Shopping Center in beautiful Brentwood. Maher and Kitty Fawaz, along
with partner and executive chef Beth Collins, have
created health conscience Mediterranean restaurants.
The atmosphere of the restaurants is that of
Mediterranean bistros, with warm brown and amber
hues creating a sense of warmth and relaxation.
Guests are greeted by friendly staff, who make their
meals fresh when ordered.
The menu is filled with an array of tasty items
created for a health conscience clientele. Most
of the menu was created by Collins, but a few
items draw from Kitty’s experience as a
registered dietitian with Saint Thomas Hospital.
Collins worked formerly at the Mad Platter and
met Kitty while working at the St. Thomas heart
healthy cooking school.
The menu is filled with delights such as savory
lamb, the best humus around, and stuffed grape
leaves whose rice stuffing balances the tart pickle
flavor of the leaves. The tuna salad remains healthy
without the fatty mayonnaise and instead contains
lemon, oil along with capers wrapped in a pita.
The desserts are not to be missed. Tempting Baklava
awaits at the counter and the light and rich tiramisu
is becoming a favorite.
