For the long holiday weekend, Mr. Eats and I decided to give ourselves a treat and go out to lunch. Arnold Myint just opened his new place at the Nashville Farmers Market and I’d heard good things from opening day from Tabitha and Kelly, so we headed over for an early meal.
I’d looked for a menu and couldn’t find one—turns out, AM@FM is selling prepared foods for grab-n-go in the kitchen at ChaChah, so it doesn’t have its own menu per se. But the offerings consist of premade sandwiches, salads and sides. And there are a number of vegetarian options. They'll change seasonally, but there will always be several vegetarian and likely at least one vegan option on the menu.
Arnold and Zarna were in the shop and he very kindly let us sample some of the salads—a light and refreshing cucumber salad, a rosemary macaroni salad and a Moroccan-style couscous salad with golden raisins. We were fans of all three, though I think Baby Eats liked the macaroni salad the best.
There’s an elegant bar area set up along the side of the space with a few chairs for people who can stay, but we (as in, Baby Eats) needed to go, so we picked out a few things to take with us. I couldn’t resist the foccaccia with cippolinis (or the dill shallot pistole) and Mr. Eats got a ham sandwich that included apples and Kenny’s Farmhouse cheddar and a side of housemade brown mustard (with apricot—I think; I gobbled it up so fast, I didn’t stop to think about it). We also got some marinated cippolinis (I love them, but they’re a pain in ask to prepare at home) and some housemade chips with truffle salt. And our bill was less than $14!
Additionally, there is an assortment of packaged items for sale from the ChaChah kitchen such as smoked salts and soon (I hope) that delicious brown mustard. There are plans in the works to serve wine as well.
AM@FM is located in the Market House toward the back, across the food court from Fleur de Lis Flavors. And I believe the hours are 11am-3pm seven days a week.
