ATHENA RESTAURANT, Chicago, IL
Located in the heart of down town Chicago, our restaurant was established in 1997 and ever since is providing its customers with excellent quality Greek Cuisine. In an effort to guide our patrons through a journey full of flavors, Athena Restaurant has become the medium between the Ancient Greek Tradition and the Modern Western World.
Our restaurant is dedicated to the city of Athens, capital of Greece, which carries the longest history from any other city in the world for at least 4 millenniums. This is the city that gave birth to democracy, and set the foundations of the Western Civilization. Explore this journey from the ancient to the modern tradition in our multi-elevated indoor space decorated in a traditional way with objects from all over Greece. Feel the warmth of the place and enjoy your dining experience next to one of our two fireplaces, or relax under the candle light.
For the hot summer nights, enjoy your lunch or dinner in our beautiful outdoor patio, which is continuously rated as Chicago's best outdoor dining by the Zagat survey. Decorated with fountains and columns derived from the ancient architecture, our well designed patio was created to provide you with the actual experience of the ancient city Athens. With the Chicago's skyline view lying in front of you, look at the modern Acropolis while enjoying our fresh, daily prepared meals.
