“We offer old Georgian, but modernized dishes with European services. This was the aim, to create a place that would offer something different and unique, something that not every Georgian restaurant has” – says Irakli Kakhidze, one of the founders of Meama.

There was a surprise awaiting for guests, after they enjoyed beautiful views and amazing dishes. A lot of impressive prizes were drawn for them, but it was not the culmination of the evening. Singer Sopo Batilashvili, winner of Georgian song contests “Only Georgian”, was specially invited to accompany the evening. Sopo made the event even more joyful as she performed beautiful Georgian compositions.

“I like the idea of Meama very much. I think I will visit this place quite often, because there is a cool mix of old and new Georgian. What is important, is that the old is maintained and is getting enriched with new ideas. This is the most interesting” – says Sopo Batilashvili.

Now let’s say few words about this beautiful building. Saiatnova (Armenian poet and musician, who lived in Tbilisi) once lived in Brother Zdanovich 8. Balconies and veranda of the restaurant face the most spectacular view of Tbilisi.

A century ago cultural history was created in this building. Now, in the same building, Meama creates new history of modern Georgian culture and cuisine.
