CWEA First Friday Happy Hour

Tazé Mediterranean Street Food is founded on using the best ingredients that are transformed into authentic flavors enjoyed in a casual and welcoming atmosphere.  Tazé is a unique, family-owned fast casual restaurant, which features cuisine using traditional Mediterranean cooking techniques and recipes. The flavors and ingredients from Morocco, Turkey, Greece, Israel, Spain and other cultures surrounding the Mediterranean Sea have influenced our cuisine.  The word Tazé is derived from the Turkish word for “fresh” which contributes to our philosophy using the freshest and finest ingredients to provide our guests with a memorable and healthy dining experience.   The inviting ingredients of the Mediterranean allow Tazé to offer a diverse menu including Tandoor roasted meats, Gyros, Falafel, homemade Pita bread, vegetarian and vegan salads & sides.

The Visioning goal is to meet community needs and desires.

This architecturally stunning building was designed by Theodore Link, commissioned by the
Wednesday Club in 1908. It is Arts and Crafts style, Link’s first foray into modernisn. It holds a 500 seat auditorium with good acoustics and large, inviting rooms on the second floor. It is ideal for events and group meetings. Compare the difference between the Link-designed Second Presbyterian Church across the street.
