Taziki's Mediterranean Cafe

Posted by Taylor May on 04/18/2018

Taziki’s Mediterranean Café opened its third location in Oklahoma on April 18, 2018 at 1389 E. 15t Street, Edmond, OK.  Taziki’s, a “fresh-casual,” Mediterranean inspired restaurant, prepares over 100 items from scratch daily. 


The restaurant will seat over 100 people inside and will also have a spacious outdoor patio.  The modern, Mediterranean décor will include hardwood furnishings, vaulted ceilings, natural stone, wood finishes, and a fireplace, the perfect setting to enjoy a glass of wine, mixed drink, or beer. The restaurant will also have a patio and a private meeting/dining space that will have full Audio/Visual capabilities.


Taziki’s is known in Tulsa for having freshly prepared salads, sandwiches and gyros made with lamb, beef and chicken, as well as flavorful seafood options including salmon, tilapia and shrimp. 


The first Taziki’s in Tulsa opened in December of 2015 at 71st and Yale.  The second Taziki’s in Oklahoma opened in November of 2017 on Cherry Street.   “The people of Oklahoma have embraced our concept and we are blessed to be opening our first store in Edmond,” said the Operating Partner and Tulsa resident Dino Nithianadan.  “We are looking forward to serving our fresh, healthy menu, and are proud to provide great food with gluten free and vegetarian options at a reasonable price,” said owner Mike Pierce. 


“We are dedicated to supporting the Edmond community and look forward to continuing to give back in many ways,” said Jason Opie a partner in the location and Oklahoma City resident.  “To celebrate the grand opening, Taziki’s will make a donation to St. Jude of Oklahoma, just as we did when we opened our first two Oklahoma locations.” 


“We are so excited for the third Taziki’s location opening in Oklahoma—at each opening, and throughout the year, Taziki’s supports St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in our fundraising efforts to continue to support families and children fighting childhood cancer. At St. Jude families never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food—all of this is possible because of wonderful partners, like Taziki’s, who continue to support us and our mission,” said Taylor Johnson the Regional Event Specialist for St. Jude of Oklahoma.


In 2016, the United States Healthful Food Council (USHFC) announced that Taziki's Mediterranean Cafe' had become the first national franchise to achieve REAL Certification, the emerging national standard for foodservice nutrition and sustainability. To become certified, Taziki’s had to go through an analysis of its restaurants, cooking processes, product sourcing and nutritional options.
