Cheers to Athens' Hotel Grande Bretagne for knowing that great service is in the details. For diners in the rooftop restaurant having trouble seeing the menu, a waiter will bring to the table a pair of reading glasses—minimalist clear-plastic frames in a chic leather case—in a selection of magnifications. The glasses are so stylish that several guests, including Queen Sofia of Spain, have requested they be for sale. But for now, the specs are only loaners. 30-210-333-0000; www.grandebretagne.gr.
