Fine World Cuisine in Athens, Ohio

We are currently welcoming fully vaccinated guests for dine-in Wednesday through Saturday from 5:30 to 9:00.  Please remember to bring your mask and wear it until seated at your table (and preferably until you begin dining.) Below you will find the specials for Wednesday, Sept 22through Saturday, Sept 25.

PLEASE NOTE THAT RESERVATIONS ARE NOT ACCEPTED EXCEPT FOR PARTIES OF 7 OR MORE. 

We have been working hard to try to provide the safest "dine in" experience we can for you. We have installed  high-tech air purification systems (Reme Halo LED) in both the dining and kitchen areas. (For a non-affiliated review of the technology, you might want to watch this video about it HERE.)  We have also removed some tables from our dining room to place more space between tables.  In addition, we have a new "outdoor-ish" dining space we're calling the Garden Room... you can see a photo taken from the sidewalk, below. Finally, ALL our staff is vaccinated and require that all dine-in customers be vaccinated as well.  If you are not vaccinated, we'll be happy to prepare food "to-go" for you.


In addition to our regular menu, we still have specials that change every week, so check below to see what we have coming up! We publish the specials for each coming week on Monday or Tuesday.  We will continue to offer both traditional and contactless prepaid carryout (of both regular menu items and specials.) The number to call is now the restaurant's land line: (740) 594-3800, and you may call to place your carryout order as early as 4:30 each day we are open.
