After Athens opened its doors in 2001, and nearly a year later, after receiving an outstanding review by New Jersey Monthly in 2002, it became a premier destination for authentic Greek cuisine.
Owner Dimitri Valavanis bared his heart and soul when he designed the restaurant and café. The love for his homeland and Greek culture is evident throughout the entire establishment, resulting in romantic ambience as well as a relaxing atmosphere. The street-level candle-lit dining area has brick and tin walls, making the room a warm and inviting place, while the unique underground dining area boasts a white-washed grotto reminiscent of the Greek Islands. Authentic Greek meals, along with regional favorites, are sure to please every guest.
Being minutes from Giants Stadium and the Meadowlands makes After Athens the perfect spot for a peaceful dining experience after a concert or game.
