Welcome to Nashville: Taziki’s Mediterranean Cafe

Taziki’s is an old Birmingham favorite of ours. Every Friday, I would head over to their Mountain Brook location for the special, and now every time my husband and I get a chance while we’re in town, that is one of the places we like to frequent.

The great news is that we don’t have to drive to Birmingham for Taziki’s anymore! Yay! They have franchised their multiple locations in Alabama and they are now in Nashville, Arkansas and West Virginia.  They have two locations, in Cool Springs off McEwen Drive (south of the new Whole Foods) and  the soon to be open West End location, behind the Panera and Which Wich.

The Friday Special is definitely my favorite thing on the menu. Light, fresh and a little tangy. It’s grilled chicken with penne pasta, served on a bed of lettuce with homemade, creamy balsamic vinaigrette and topped with feta, diced tomatoes and a fresh chiffonade of basil.

Other favorites are the Chicken Basil-Pesto-Gyro, Tiger Shrimp Greek Salad and the Taziki Dip. Or grab a sweet iced tea and have their great hummus on their patio.

Another great option for families who want to eat at home is their take out Fresh Feasts for 4. Grilled Chicken Breast, marinated for 12 hours in their homemade Greek dressing with Taziki sauce, Roasted Port Loin, Sliced Roasted Leg of Lamb or a Whole Baked Chicken. Served with sides like fruit, pasta salad, tomato-cucumber salad or basmati rice. They also do catering – a good option for a non-pork or red meet Friday business meeting.

They’ve only been open a little over two weeks down in Franklin, so go down and see them! We’ll be there next Friday, for sure.
