Note: Taza is no longer in operation. Greek cuisine in South Florida has come to be synonymous with throwing around napkins and guzzling ouzo while dancing on top of the tables. But Greek-influenced Taza makes a distinct break from that tradition. The swank, nouveau-Athenian digs are located along 17th Street Causeway, home of the power lunch. Here, suits looking for a quick bite can polish off kebab platters with grilled chicken or parsley-flecked kafta while they watch sporting events on flat-screen panels hanging above the slick granite bartop. From there, Taza's ship sails west, where it picks up gnocchi with sautéed garlic and spinach, mussels steeped in aromatic saffron broth, and a puff-pastry take on escargots Bourguignon. The full bar is well-stocked with spirits and draft beer, and the weekday happy hour from 4 to 7 p.m. includes random bouts of belly dancing, also reprised on Friday and Saturday nights.
