Fine World Cuisine in Athens, Ohio

(IF YOU ARE SEEING THIS MESSAGE, WE ARE NOT YET OPEN FOR DINE-IN.)

We know you are anxious for us to reopen for dine-in and expanded carryout hours, and that you can't wait to see what we've been working on at the restaurant.  We are sure you'll love our new "garden room" and can't wait to show off the results of all our hard work throughout the restaurant, which includes a high-tech air purification system and a more spacious dining room, a new point-of-sale system, some updated appliances and more.  Barring unforseen circumstances, we should be opening for dine-in on August 4th.    Until then, however, we are sticking with our current business model, which is to offer only pre-ordered, pre-paid meals for contactless pickup on Friday and Saturday evenings. Mark and Hilarie prep a menu for you each weekend with care and love. The menu changes every weekend, so check below to see what we have coming up! We publish the menu for the coming weekend each Wednesday evening.  See below for ordering and pickup instructions.  Note that there is a specific window of time for ordering, and that pickup is in the rear of the restaurant. Thanks!
