Athens Grill has been a Gaithersburg/Montgomery Village staple for over 30 years– the restaurant opened at 9124 Rothbury Drive in Goshen Plaza in 1991. A few weeks back the restaurant suffered a sprinkler malfunction that led to a bevy of issues that have temporarily closed the restaurant.
We spoke with the owner of the restaurant who told us that following the sprinkler malfunction, the restaurant has had to replace every piece of cooking equipment and has undergone two professional cleanings as well as additional cleaning by the owners and employees. Athens Grill is having their new equipment installed this week and is hoping to open by Friday.
They wanted everyone to know that they look forward to reopening and serving the community as soon as they can.
