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.  THIS WEEK, HOWEVER, WE WILL BE CLOSED ON SATURDAY (OCT 30.) 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, October 20 through FRIDAY, October 29.  Click the Menu tab above to see our regular menus.

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

We are 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. ALL our staff is vaccinated and we 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. Our servers wear masks (yes, over their noses too!) and we ask that you wear your mask until you are seated and dining. 


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.

salad special: ANN'S SALAD

A favorite from our old Salaam menu, this salad features candied pecans, oranges and scallions, with a sweet apple cider vinaigrette.  Small 5, large 8

soup special: ROASTED RED PEPPER-COCONUT

A smooth vegan soup.  cup 4, bowl 7

PIRI-PIRI CHICKEN WITH ROASTED POTATOES

So popular last time that we thought we'd better do it again sooner rather than later! Ohio chicken in a spicy Afro-Portuguese marinade. It’s grilled, glazed and served atop garlicky oven-roasted potatoes, with a side of roasted carrots.  24

GREEK LAMB AND EGGPLANT MOUSSAKA

A classic rendition of this fabulous dish, from the Greek cookbook that Athena Tracy gave me as a wedding gift more than 40 years ago! Layers of eggplant, a thick lamb-and-tomato sauce with wine and hints of cinnamon and oregano, and a thick egg-enriched bechamel, topped with toasty breadcrumbs.  Served with grilled peppers, zucchini and onions, and crusty bread.  24

BUTTERNUT SQUASH RAVIOLI WITH GORGONZOLA, WALNUTS AND SIZZLED SAGE

A fall favorite! Plump pasta pillows stuffed with butternut squash, topped with a gorgonzola bechamel, toasted walnuts and fried sage leaves. They’re served with a side of carrots roasted with olive oil, cumin and a hint of cinnamon.  22

Side vegetable special: MOROCCAN STYLE ROASTED CARROTS


ORDERING DIRECTIONS

We are now open for indoor dining by fully vaccinated guests Wednesday through Saturday from 5:30-9:00.  You may still order specials or regular menu items for pickup until 8:45 each evening; you may phone in your order as early as 4:00pm  for pickup starting at 5:15.  You may choose to still pay by phone (please use the restaurant number: 740-594-3800) and use our contactless pickup in the REAR of the restaurant.  To do this, please proceed in the direction of travel on S. 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 shelf unit on our rear patio, where we will place your bags of food as soon as they are ready.  No need to call, unless there's a problem with your order.
