Starting new GoogleMap: Athens Restaurants, suggestions plz!

Brainstorming needed :)

Starting a new Athens related Google map which ( i hope so ) will have map locations for top restaurants in Athens. I 'll also try to link pins with TA reviews ( lol, this one seems difficult, cross fingers i don't link wrong pins with wrong numbers, lol )

A map including only those restaurants i think, is a bit of a foul, so plz do send me your suggestions. Restaurant name is all i need.

I really need your requests too to make it a more valid map.

Only downtown restaurants for now, meaning 1 subway stop top from Syndagma, Omonoia, Monastiraki :)

This is the map for now:

Hi Nick,

this is a great idea! It will be extremely useful for me in order to locate restaurants in the twisty-and-turny streets of the historic centre.

One of the places I've seen mentioned in past posts - and which seems very interesting to me as I love lamb - is Steki tou Elias (spelling?): I'm not sure where it's located exactly, so I'd like to see it pinned on a map...

(I hope it is not out of the 'downtown' boundaries)

Thanks!

Great idea Nick! Here's my suggestion:

In May 2007 friends and I stayed a few nights at the Amazon Hotel at the corner of Pentelis and Mitropoleos Streets.

Just across Mitropoleos was the In Town Cafe.

We ate a few meals there as it was so handy and the Mythos was always cold. Plus Thanassos the waiter would have the beer on our table within seconds of sitting down. Is it a great restaurant? Frankly I'm not enough of a foodie to know. But the meals we had there were great and the chairs and tables outdoors were comfortable and inviting.

I need a magnifying lens Rob in there, or better Google-maps analysis :)

Done! :) I have a questionmark on exact pin location / current status. Marked it and i 'll check it walking. Thank you for the suggestion :)

Added :) Great options Litsa :)

now that they get more, we 'll have to play the "find which place this pin is" :) A bit difficult in Athens chaotic grid :)

If searching for a specific restaurant, use colum on the left. All restaurants are sorted alphabetically.

If searching a location, just pick what is near yoursearching point, picking the pins in the map :)
