Just wanted to share one of my favorite locations in Nashville. Kalamata’s offers the absolute most consistently fantastic fare in Nashville. Seven years ago, my friend Max Abrams (Max on Sax) and I planned to have lunch together. He brought me to Kalamata’s where it seemed like the owners knew him, remembered him and after we ordered, our food was ready within a few minutes.
My favorite thing to order is the hummus appetizer and the lamb gyro. I promise that you’ve never had EITHER dish that tasted so good. Kalamatas prides itself on healthy meal options. Their salmon salad seems to be a huge favorite with friends of mine, but I’ve never been able to pass up my gyro on a visit.
My Kalamatas is the green hills location, right off Crestmoor and Hillsboro Road. They have a couple other locations, but I’ve been a consistent customer at this location.
Green Hills is always the place to be in Nashville if you like to enjoy the “finer” things in life. The Mall at Green Hills promises and delivers many luxury shops, but lacks a food court.
When I lived out of town, I would plan my at least on visit to Kalamatas while I was in town. Seven years later, I consistently return the favor by sharing my love of Kalamata’s with my friends and visitors.
Today, after a particularly pleasant (I’ve never had an unpleasant trip here) visit with a long overdue lunch here at Kalamatas, I figured I would give them a long overdue public shout out. For those of you who love to do the celebrity spotting thing, Phil Vassar just came by for a bite too.
One thing is for sure – with great food, great service and a relaxed atmosphere, Kalamatas is a place that will keep people coming back week after week, year after year. If you’re in town, check it out!
