THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Mia Madonna Restaurant Review

: This historic downtown Athens space, formerly a cotton exchange, has generous fenestration and a bright, lively atmosphere without being noisy. Well-spaced tables and nice table amenities raise the dining experience to a very civilized level while keeping prices in check. Look at the daily specials: pan-roasted monkfish wrapped in applewood-smoked bacon for $9.75. At lunch a pair of glorious fresh salmon cakes on spinach salad for $6.75. The big meaty burger with a topping of Gorgonzola and superior house-made fries weighs in at $7.50. This meat's good enough to savor it rare, its best point. The wine program invites half-glass tasting adventures, and the wines are poured in good glasses. Do a flight for the price of an expensive bottle. Crab cakes show up as a Benedict at brunch. At Mia Madonna, dessert choices are limited to two: a tiramisu cake and a lemon chiffon cake, both incredibly moist and irresistible. The very good coffee (including the decaf) is the proper capstone.
