Brooklyn Nibbles: Athena in the South Slope

January 30th, 2009 · 5 Comments

Athena, a new Mediterranean restaurant, opened at the corner of Sixth Avenue and Fourteenth Street in the South Slope the first week of January. We’ve known about for a while, and early word has been positive, but have been waiting for a chance to wander by and grab a pic before posting about it. Well, we finally did and here it is. There’s a discussion about over on Brooklynian for those into the chit chat about it. The address is 535 Sixth Avenue and you can find their website here.

    This place rocks. We stopped in for brunch. $12.95 for yummy yogurt & fresh fruit + delish eggs benedict (boyfriend had spinach tomato feta omelet–yum) + a big, generous creme brulee (boyfriend had ice cream w/homemade chocolate sauce). Not as cheap as a diner, but we couldn’t get all this and delicious choice of blueberry muffins AND croissants for this price in Manhattan….

    We had the dips and they were amazing.
    The prices are reasonable and the service was great.
    We´ll definitely go back to try more Greek food at Athena´s.

    Great Greek Food!!!!
    Athena`s the place to go for authentic Greek food in Park Slope.
    We had a wonderful and romantic dinner last Saturday night.
    They have the best Moussaka and gyro platters.
    We`ll be back very soon to try new dishes.

    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! What a great place, the food was fresh, expertly prepared, and extremely tasty. The friendly service was very attentive (but not to the point where it becomes intrusive), and with every staff member smiling we felt very looked after. On top of it all, the prices are reasonable, especially considering the amount and quality of food you’re getting (there were two of us and we each had an appetizer, main course, desert and two soft drinks). All in all a wonderful experience! (Try the calamari appetizer, or the mussels or seafood linguine, which are both prepared with a Fra Diavolo sauce).
