Athens Eats, Part 2

While my sister was visiting we spent a big chunk of time eating out. Sadly, I didn’t get to finish my bucket list of restaurants to try, but we did make sure to visit some old standbys that you just can’t go wrong with. My sister’s favorite restaurant in town and one of my all time favorites […]
