As it’s been such a brutally hot summer, we haven’t been able to do much walking/adventuring in the other boroughs. So, today, we ventured into Park Slope, Brooklyn. After striking out in the ‘usual’ areas, we drove a few blocks, only to find “Athena” Mediterranean Cuisine on 6th Avenue. We’ve never been here before, so it was a new culinary... More

It is a small cosy restaurant. We tried the chicken and lamb suflaki and to my taste the lamb suflaki is a better choice as the chicken was a bit dry. The rice was very tasty. The spice feta was unique and perfect. They have a special wine made of Ouzo plus seven up colored blue. That was awesome. I... More

Clean place and fairly comfortable seating. But the the food portions were a bit small for adults. Taste of food average to above average at best. Friendly staff tries to get you to order more items so that you spend more $$$$$. Not really worth it.

Last night my husband and I were in the mood for Greek food, so we headed to Athena in Park Slope. We have been there several times over the years, but it had been a while since our last visit. It’s a small restaurant on a quiet stretch of Sixth Avenue and the corner of 14th Street. Athena is family... More

We were only in Brooklyn for a week, but ate dinner here twice - this has to be the friendliest, most gracious Greek restaurant in New York City. The owners treat everyone like long lost friends and serve imaginative, interesting food. The roast lamb was fork tender and nicely pink. Grilled whole red snapper was perfect. Appetizers like stuffed mushrooms... More
