Turkish Brunch! Yes, you heard me right...

We consistently come back here (over & over) because the food is amazing and the service equally so. They have been serving brunch for a while and I've wanted to try it.

Since they only serve lahmacun (aka "Turkish Pizza") on Thursdays & Sundays, then Sunday brunch it is so I can get the best of both worlds. Click on the restaurant link below to view their brunch as well as regular menu.

Also, there's an AMAZING dessert on the menu called Kunefe (see picture)! It's made to order and takes a while so you must order at the beginning of your meal. p.s. I never share my kunefe...

Kunefe .... $ 6.50
Tissue thin layers of rolled pastry, shredded and baked with unsalted cheese. Served warm with a light syrup.
*Kunefe is a specialty dessert and requires 20 minutes to prepare. Please inform your server in advance that you will be partaking in this "Turkish Delight".

About Anatolia:
This is, undoubtedly, one of my ALL TIME favorite restaurants in Nashville. I have never had anything I didn't love.

Turkish Cuisine is largely the heritage of Ottoman cuisine, which can be described as a fusion and refinement of Central Asian, Middle Eastern and Balkan cuisines. Turkish cuisine has in turn influenced those and other neighbouring cuisines, including that of Western Europe. The Ottomans fused various culinary traditions of their realm with influences from Middle Eastern cuisines, along with traditional Turkic elements from Central Asia (such as yogurt), creating a vast array of specialties- many with strong regional associations.

    Great meetup! I'm happy to see so many new faces. V suggested an picnic at Arrington sometime in Oct. Thinking maybe everyone could bring a favorite ethnic dish or appetizer to share. Let me know your thoughts.

    Hello Everyone,

    My great apologies. I must cancel this morning. I woke up with a terrible stomach virus and can't eat a thing. Hope you all have fun.

    Hi Rose,
    As I have never had brunch or lunch here, do you have any suggestions? Do you have any favorites besides the kunefe?

      I haven't had their brunch but they serve their whole menu. I love the Turkish pizza only available on Thur & Sunday. I plan to order and share with everyone who wants some. Although an appetizer, it's really a meal for 2 or an app for 6+. I'm leaning toward the Mediterranean breakfast platter for my entree. Or maybe the Norwegian Benedict. I'm a sucker for any eggs Benedict.

    I hate to "beat a dead horse" (southern phrase), but a reminder to update your RSVP ASAP if you cannot attend. Anatolia never adds the standard 18% gratuity for large groups. However, double check your bill and compensate your wait staff generously as they always do so much for us when we're there. I look forward to seeing everyone on tomorrow at 10am. If you have problems finding it, call me[masked]-6684. It's is in the Target shopping complex on White Bridge Road.

    Reservations have been made!! The wait list continues to grow with all the new members who have joined over the last couple weeks. I cannot impress upon everyone enough how important it is to update your RSVP timely if you cannot attend - preferably 24-48 hours in advance - to allow wait listed people plenty of time to plan ahead. If you're wait listed and realize you can't make it, please change your RSVP to "no" as soon as possible as well. This allows others behind you on the list the chance to move up faster.

    Hate to miss this but I have a hiking commitment.

    Just a reminder that this event is full and a long wait list exists. Please don't wait until the last 24 hours to update your RSVP, this does not allow wait listers the opportunity to plan to attend. Thank you for your cooperation.

    I agree, the food here is extremely good. I have never had lunch/brunch here. I always come for dinner, which is consistently excellent.

    When will i know if im off wait list and able to go...i may go to church

    September 24, 2013

      It depends on how timely people update their RSVP if they can't come. Hopefully others will not wait until the night before or morning of to cancel. I have repeatedly pleaded with members to be considerate of others waiting.

    I have eaten dinner here several times and the food is wonderful.

    Bumped attendance limit to 24 people since they are more than able to handle a larger group. I wasn't sure what the interest level would be when I initially set this up. Can't wait.
