October 11. Suisun City, California. Dinner At The Athenian Grill.

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.
While waiting for a dinner to arrive, I strolled around the waterfront to shoot pictures.
This is the restaurant from the side.
Mr. Hawthorne had the Greek Salad - lettuces, cucumbers, feta, sun-dried tomatoes, pine nuts, onions, and a delicious Greek dressing.
He also had the lamb kabob with pita bread and an herbed olived oil.
Pita bread and tzatziki, a refreshing yogurt/cucumber dip.
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.
