Athena | Greektown | Greek, Mediterranean | Restaurant
Greektown place with an inviting outdoor garden.

Our Review

At Athena you'll find old-world fare like loukaniko (homemade sausage), dolmades, lamb with artichokes in lemon sauce, and galaktobouriko, a faintly lemon-flavored custard that floats beneath several flaky layers of honey-soaked phyllo dough. The bright interior is spacious and colorful, but the big draw is the lovely two-level outdoor garden, open spring to fall. Still, that’s not what keeps at least one customer coming. A 45-year-old who’s been dining here weekly since 1996, when the Tsoukalas family opened Athena, says, “They make you feel comfortable, and that’s not true of all these Greek restaurants.”
