An archaeological museum might seem an unlikely lunch spot, but the menu at the new Acropolis Museum, tel: (30-210) 900 0901, is made to tempt grown-up Athenians back to the mound and offers absurdly good value. Start with smoked trout, then try the salad of spinach, basil and Lefkada salami, followed by custard pie (about $18 in total). Afterward, tour the state-of-the-art Bernard Tschumi building. The argument that Athens can't adequately house the Elgin Marbles has been given a handsome answer.
