Taziki's Mediterranean Café updated its interior design at its Alabaster, Ala., location around the Greek concept of "eudaimonia," meaning a deeper, enduring sense of happiness. The design captures a Mediterranean coastal aesthetic and features shades of bright white and deep ocean blue throughout. Sunflowers in Greek pots greet patrons as they enter the restaurant. Community tables establish a welcoming environment for conversation within the exposed stone and painted walls.
