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.

Green Hills location

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.
