The Grit is famous in Athens as a (very) casual, unpretentious, affordable place for delicious vegetarian food. Whether choosing among several options for the vegetable plate, one of the daily specials, or something off the menu, we always wind up with a generous portion of something yummy. Though we are vegetarian, there are plenty of omnivorous customers to keep place hopping for lunch and dinner, not to mention the weekend brunch. The atmosphere is kind of funky and many of the waitstaff can be found playing some sort of music on stage later on downtown. I wouldn't go with the expectation of 5 star dining, or a quiet candlelit salon, but for authentic Athens and a lively experience it is well worth trying, especially for the visitor.
