Independent Brewing Co.


There’s lots to love about this cozy tavern, but the fact that of her three restaurants, this is the only one that has Chef Jamz’s delicious empanadas—and Kalamata can never resist. Her other favorite is the pimento cheese and crackers, which are just a little fancier than what mama gives her at home, and of course she’s not leaving without at least a taste of the lemon/strawberry/marshmallow ice cream sandwich.

Kalamata SAYS

"If we go, I’m getting the empanada. But if mama gets the fried chicken sandwich with pineapple and honey… I’m getting a bite."
