In between bites of saganaki and spanokotiropita, diners at Franklin’s Athens Restaurant can feast their eyes on the ruins of ancient Greece.

The Parthenon, with its Doric columns and crumbling marble facade, captures the attention. Small figures climb stairs and walk around the debris, accentuating the size of the structures.

All around it, the city spreads off into the horizon.

“This is the rock where everything started. They built the first fortress and shrine to worship gods. This is the most important point,” said artist Miso Zlovic, who painted the mural. “It’s history.”
