In Fairfield, we inquired at the hotel about restaurants. We were wisely steered to the Athenian Grill, on the waterfront in Suison City, California, just a few miles away.
Here's the menu.
Very friendly and helpful waitstaff. Casual atmosphere. Family-oriented. Quite a pleasurable experience.
Mr. Hawthorne had the Greek Salad - lettuces, cucumbers, feta, sun-dried tomatoes, pine nuts, onions, and a delicious Greek dressing.
I ordered the Mezethakia. It's a combination appetizer plate featuring spanakopita - layers of phyllo, spinach, and feta; tyropita - basically the spanakopita sans spinach; keftethes - juicy meatballs; dolmades - grape leaves stuffed with a ground meat mixture accented by the judicious addition of fresh mint; and a cool, complimentary mixture of kalamata olives, green peppers, red onions, tomatoes, and cucumbers with a chunk of feta on the side and the herbed olive oil for dipping. I loved having so many different options on my plate - all of which were good. I think I'll have to make this when I get home. * This has been one of our favorite meals so far.* Ange, are you taking notes?
