After three decades of delighting Richmond residents with his delectable Greek cuisine, Chef and Restauranteur Abdul Abdel-Hady finally has a location in the West End! Athens West is the newest endeavor for the former owner and chef of Athens Tavern on North Robinson Street in the fan. With multiple NBC restaurant report Hall of Fame Awards, and recognition from the City of Richmond for food safety excellence, this is a new spot in your neck of the woods that you don’t want to miss.

Abdul is well known by his regular customers for his off menu specials. Seafood entrees always rise to the top of the list with dishes such as Whole Red Snapper, Sautéed Mussels, and Stuffed Rockfish just to name a few. But if you’re in the mood for some of the more tried and true Greek fare don’t you worry, we’ve got you covered. Heaping portions of Moussaka and Pastichio, perfectly crisped Spanakopita and Tiropita, and a lamb stew, Arnaki, that melts in your mouth. Marinated to perfection, our Pork or Chicken Souvlaki will never disappoint.

On May 1, Athens West will be opening for lunch offering sizzling thin crust pizzas, grilled steak and chicken subs, as well as mouthwatering Gyros and Souvlaki Pitas. Also in May, we will be serving brunch on Saturday mornings, from chef Todd Beals. Our brunch menu will feature items such as the warm and hearty Hummus Melt, and the savory Athens Benedict. The restaurant also has Greek desserts that will leave you wanting more. We serve a full selection of Greek wine and beer, with a full bar and cocktail menu coming soon. With our authentic Greek family friendly atmosphere, this is the place where the whole family can enjoy. Come dine with us for a true Greek experience without traveling too far!

Since 2002 Travinia Italian Kitchen has been serving delicious, contemporary American Italian cuisine.

Serving a wonderful variety of dishes for lunch and dinner, many of which can be prepared gluten free, Travinia Italian Kitchen has a menu designed to please everyone.

Our newest menu marks the return of some old favorites: Lobster Ravioli in Brandy Cream Sauce, Veal or Chicken Saltimbocca, Seared Bluefin Tuna, Linguine Carbonara – prepared tableside - and classic Spaghetti and Meatballs.

Our guests can look forward to creative American Italian cuisine, an atmosphere of comfort and style and a carefully chosen wine list featuring more than 50 wines offered by the glass.
