Brunch in Athens?
Does anyone know of any good places for Saturday-Sunday brunch in Athens. Some places in the center or not far from the center by subway? Any recommendations and addresses would be welcome.
I think the best place in town is the roof garden at the Grande Bretagne Hotel. It is right at the Syntagma metro stop (blue line), which is in the center of town. If you are there during good weather, you can enjoy a great view of the Acropolis from the outside deck. It is quite a spectacular spread -- pretty much everything you'd want, and well worth the money for a splurge.
Hell's Kitchen is also an option. I Haven't been there yet for brunch (only dinner) but I hear they even do scrambled eggs. Their dinner was not too expensive, and I think it's one of the best " value for your money" restaurants in Athens.
I know that my sound silly, but I am sure that anyone who lives in Athens, can attest to the fact, that alot restaurants here that veer away from the greek kitchen are way overpriced for what they offer. Atleast that's been my experience so far.
Hell's Kitchen isn't like that. As I understand, it's three partners who I think have lived, or maybe even grew up (?) in New York. The kitchen is tasty and unpretentious, and I had a great experience at dinner, and I have been meaning to go for brunch.
Location is central, it is tucked in behind Athen's city hall on Athina st, between Monastiraki and Omonia stations. Here's their address: Hell's Kitchen
