having grown up eating my grandmother's home-cooked mediterranean food, i am a bit spoiled when it comes to such fare. this gentleman generally offers a wonderful array of middle-eastern food, so much so that he now has three locations of his restaurant here in nashville. when i got married, he housed and catered the rehearsal dinner, and it was thoroughly enjoyed... and there was belly-dancing. he, like so many from the "old country," is the most genial of people, hospitable beyond compare, and that has surely helped him corner the market when it comes to our kind of food. it is hard to choose between the many options when i dine with him, but today i am thinking about the spinach pie plate. Alhumdulilah.
