Available Now: À la Kalamata featuring Chef Eric Ripert

Athena Pallas


Everyone knows that one of Kalamata’s favorite Taste Buds is Joanna Kosmides Edwards (our talented illustrator). What people may not know is that Joanna’s father, Michael, is the chef and owner of this Crystal City institution. Jo’s sons, Ollie and Jude love to order the gigantes, which are giant butter beans, and the chicken kabob, but the whole table loves the Mediterranean spreads!
