ATHENS - Hilton Athens today launched the new summer menu at Galaxy Restaurant, which boasts outstanding panoramic views of the city including the Acropolis; Lycabettus Hill; Ymittos Mountain and the Athenian coastline. Located on the top floor of Hilton Athens, the seasonal opening of Galaxy Restaurant marks the beginning of the summer every year: amazing terrace, refreshing cocktails, upbeat music and delicious dishes created by Executive Chef Yiannis Manikis.

At the outdoor barbeque guests can try the American beef Dakota fillet, a juicy rib-eye, a delicious Creekstone T-bone or choose from the one of the many seafood dishes, such as a fresh sea bass fillet, lobster tail and shrimps. The menu fuses Mediterranean with International tastes in a creative and exciting way. Guests can also enjoy spinach risotto with Kozani saffron; spaghettini with Alaskan crab and shrimps; wood fire grilled squid with chillipreserved lemon-chickpea salad and watercress; Greek salad with Kalathaki Limnou cheese and green olive oil "Mandragoras"; organic quinoa summer salad with pan-roasted scallops and pea purée.

Galaxy restaurant also offers an enriched sushi menu, with some of Yiannis Manikis new, inspiring dishes: "Year of the Dragon" with shrimp tempura and avocado; "Sunset Maki" with spicy tuna mix and cucumber; "Maguro Butso" with new style tuna and spicy Shirancha sauce.

For a unique and intimate dining experience, guests can create their own mini BBQ by choosing one of the "Hot Stone" suggestions, cooking their favorite meat or seafood on hot lava stones at the table with friends. To complete this tasteful journey, fresh strawberries served with an almond short dough crust will delight the senses, as will the "Apple and caramel sensation" served with vanilla ice cream.

Galaxy Restaurant is open every day from 7:30pm, and signature cocktails are available at the brand new outdoor bar set in the terrace. For more information and reservations, please call +30 210 7281407.
