THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Athanasios Greek Italian Cuisine Restaurant Review

: This is a popular and somewhat nondescript local restaurant where many patrons have been coming for years. The nearby Beach Theater makes this spot an especially nice after-cinema stop, with china service on blue checked tablecloths. The menu easily mixes the two ethnic tastes its name promises: Greek dishes done with a light touch and Italian fare that includes the popular linguine pescatore, a nice mix of pasta, crushed tomatoes, olive oil and lots of fish. The Greek portion of the menu has all of the expected options: spanakopita, feta cheese, Greek olives, taramasalata, dolmadakia and even marinated octopus. Entrées include Mykonos grouper served on a bed of spinach, and the ever-appreciated Greek salad and bread. Desserts are always delicious here, including even the simplest of selections such as rice pudding topped with a touch of cinnamon.
