Epice, pronounced “a piece,” opened last week for lunch and dinner in 12South.
The owners of Kalamatas opened a Lebanese bistro in the 12South neighborhood, simply because “there’s no other Lebanese bistro here,” said Maher Fawaz, who created the restaurant with co-owner and executive chef at Kalamatas, Beth Collins. Fawaz also says “Lebanese cuisine is well known as one of the healthiest cuisines in world.”
Led by executive chef William Zaitz, the menu includes dishes such as lamb chops, Shawarma, or seasoned julienned sirloin with pickles and onion relish, and Hummos Beyrouti, a chickpea puree with braised ground sirloin and pine nuts. A selection of Mediterranean wines and local beers are also available.
Epice is located at 2902 12th Ave. S. Hours are 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday and 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Sunday.
