Taziki's opens today

Posted By on Thu, Sep 25, 2008 at 9:40 AM

Taziki’s, an upscale Greek restaurant, today brings grilled meats, hummus, stuffed grape leaves, grilled fish and many other touchstones of Greek cuisine (including the yogurt dip from which the restaurant’s name derives) to an expensively remade slot in the strip center at 8200 Cantrell Road.

The first franchise outlet of a Birmingham, Ala., restaurant, it’s overseen by restaurant veteran and former state legislator Jim Keet and his sons, Tommy and Jake. Ethnic food, heart-healthy Mediterranean cooking and food to-go are all hot properties in restaurants today, so Taziki’s should be well positioned. Many will be happy, too, that it hasn’t joined the general rush to far western locations.

Fish choices will include tilapia, grouper and salmon. It will be served in sandwiches at lunch and larger portions for dinner.

The restaurant will have a choice wine and beer selection, though the permit may not be in place for Thursday’s opening (Sept. 25). Hours will be 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 11-9 Friday and Saturday, and 11-3 Sunday. There’s a big deck in the back.
