Greek cuisine is so much more than gyros, olives and feta, but when the craving strikes, what is the best Greek restaurant on Long Island?

Long Islanders voted Athenian the Greek Taverna the Best Greek Restaurant on Long Island in the 2021 Bethpage Best of Long Island contest!

If you’re looking for a Greek meal cooked “Yiayia’s way,” (grandma’s way) — look no further than Athenian Greek Taverna. As one of Commack’s premier restaurants, Athenian is the place to find the most delectable traditional Greek fare, whether it’s for lunch, dinner or catering.

Since Athenian’s opening, Greek-American brothers John and Chef Alex Homenides have offered guests a chance to taste time-tested family recipes, using fresh and authentic ingredients delivered daily. Their menu has a variety of options for you to pick and choose from, including sandwiches and gyros, a kebab corner for flame roasted and skewered meats, a fillet bar stacked with fish options, and much more.

They also have Yiayia’s classics, of course, with options like fresh eggplant dish and spanakopita (traditional Greek spinach pie). When you go Greek, go here!

Athenian Greek Taverna is located at 2188 Jericho Tpke. in Commack. It can be reached at 631-499-7660 or atheniangreektaverna.com
