Since Athenian's opening day, Greek-American brothers John and Chef Alex Homenides have been cooking up traditional Greek dishes "Yiayia's way," using fresh, authentic ingredients delivered daily and time-tested family recipes.


Athenian has been the recipient of several local awards and the subject of news features by outlets like Newsday and Rob Petrone's Restaurant Hunter.

In 2019, the brothers announced that after 25 years at their tiny Taverna, Athenian would be expanding to a much larger, brand new space just across the street. The new space offers over 30 seats, a bar, and limited outdoor seating.


The new Athenian Greek Taverna opened its doors on Friday, June 21st.
