Established in 2004 by owner John Mantzopoulos, Athens Grill has evolved into a more authentic Greek restaurant, not only in the dishes, but through its use of low-fat Mediterranean ingredients: fresh local fish, lots of vegetables, legumes, greens, and olive oil.
“When we expanded our dining room two years ago we decided to do away with the old cliché of blue and white decor and modified Greek food,” said Mr. Mantzopoulos, “And the results so far have been very positive from our customers. In essence, we kind of moved toward a slow food movement while creating new spins on original Greek recipes, and that reflects towards our carefully selected Greek wine.”
Athens Grill has a full bar and outdoor dining and will cater your special event.
