Shaped by simplicity and spawned by ingenuity. Simple, unpretentious foods such as grains, pasta and legumes are enriched by the pungent, earthy flavors of garlic, onion, eggplant and artichoke, and by the essences of the olive oil, lemons and raisins.
Greek cooking which is tied to nature and to the seasons, reflects the simple environment of sun-earth-sea. The cuisine of Greece flourishes because of this quality. Here at Cafe Athena we strive to serve food with the same elemental quality.
Our chefs have created dishes that allow natural flavors to emerge and stimulate the senses. They have refined some traditional favorites into a repertoire of much lighter dishes by reducing the fat content while retaining the zest, tempting aromas and robust flavors that are hallmarks of Greek fare
