 We welcome guests for dine-in Wednesday through Saturday from 5:30 to 9 pm.  Click the Menu tab at the top of the page to see our regular menu, or scroll down to see our specials this week.  We have a nice selection of beers and wines to accompany our food.

Reservations are ONLY accepted for parties of 7 or more. There are

many smaller tables that are only used for our walk-in patrons.

 

Please note: Keri begins taking orders by phone for contactless "Keri-out" when she arrives at 2 or 3 pm, so if you call before then and leave a message,  expect a callback around 3 pm. Ordering early helps the kitchen staff to plan and prepare for your order, so, when you can, please order early! (You may pick up your order at a time you choose, between 5  and 8:30 pm.) The number to call is the restaurant's land line: (740) 594-3800. If it rings busy, we are fielding other calls to those who have left a voicemail.  We do not call back unless we are responding to your voicemail, so please do leave a simple message with your name and callback number!

SALAD SPECIAL: SHAVED FENNEL AND APPLE

A delightful salad of thinly sliced fennel from the Ohio Student Farm, with crisp shaved apple pieces, celery and walnuts.  It’s served with a light lemon dressing.  8

STRACCETTI DI MANZO

This dish (the name means Little Rags of Beef) is a classic Roman preparation and we love it here in Athens too! Thin “raggy” slices of beef are sautéed quickly in olive oil with garlic and arugula.  We like to serve this dish with pasta and some fresh basil and shaved parmesan.  29

GRILLED CHICKEN AND PEACH SALAD

It’s a Salaam favorite, and it’s back!  Grilled chicken breast and grilled balsamic-glazed peaches, with crumbled gorgonzola and toasted walnuts on romaine lettuce from the Ohio Student Farm. We’ll serve it with our house-made honey balsamic dressing on the side.  25

BAKED CHEESE MANICOTTI

Fresh pasta encasing a mix of creamy ricotta and parmesan with hints of nutmeg are baked with a tomato and fresh basil sauce with shredded mozzarella, topped with some shaved parmesan and served with crusty bread. 27

FEATURED VEGETABLE: ROASTED BRUSSELS SPROUTS

Brussels sprouts roasted with olive oil, salt and pepper

ORDERING for CONTACTLESS PICKUP

You may order specials or regular menu items for pickup until 8:30, and can phone in your order as early as 2:00 pm for your choice of pickup time starting at 5:00. (Ordering early helps us with workflow in the kitchen and is always appreciated! DO leave a voicemail; we will call  you back in the order that calls are received.) You are welcome to pay by phone (use the restaurant number: 740-594-3800) and take advantage of our contactless pickup in the REAR of the restaurant.  To do this, please proceed in the direction of travel on South Congress Street. Don't turn left onto Washington Street... just pass it and then turn left to enter the parking lot behind the restaurant.  You will see  a big blue shelf unit on our rear patio, where we will place your bags of food as soon as they are ready. No need to call when picking up, unless there's a problem with your order.
