Locally-owned Elia Athenian Grill is opening its second Columbus location at Gateway at 14 E. 11th Street on Wednesday, October 24th. “Elia”, the Greek word for olive tree, is the symbol of longevity, well-being and a balanced diet. These characteristics prove to be foundational values for this restaurant. Elia Athenian Grill proudly prepares meals from local, natural ingredients, whole muscle meats with no additives, no MSG and no preservatives. The 2,236 square foot restaurant allows you the freedom to create your own Pitas, Salads and Grain bowls with a large array of toppings, dressings, meats and sauces or to select from a pre-arranged menu. This counter-serve, casual eatery is the perfect place for a quick taste of genuine Athenian street food.
