Athena Greek Restaurant Restaurant Review

: When sitting on this Greektown patio during the summer, all is right with the world. But it’s not all about city skyline views and a flower-frocked outdoor terrace --- the proof is in the sizzling, plump shrimp, served atop onions and sweet peppers with brandy-flamed feta. As for the gyros, they’re as good as any in town; meanwhile, a crisp, refreshing glass of Greek white wine proves the perfect foil for a dish of roasted red peppers stuffed with herb-flecked feta. Other specialties include char-grilled octopus and homemade loukaniko as well as dolmades, moussaka and roasted leg of lamb. Enjoying a sweet baklava and a boozy coffee beverage is a fine way to end this pleasant sojourn.
