Greek Restaurant Typography

Greek Restaurant Typography
Designs We've Seen (a lot) Series

I posted a Designs We've Seen (a lot) Series a while back about the overuse of certain fonts; specifically, Comics Sans (for Day Cares/Preschools) and Papyrus (Salons and Spas). (Comic Sans and Papyrus)

I was recently working on some menu boards for a Greek restaurant. We used beautiful high-resolution stock photography on floating frosted glass with silver studs (which goes well with the restaurant's architecture), but the client is set on using the font Adonais. I understand Adonais gets the point across, but it downgrades the class of the restaurant, and is so cliched.
Seen it all before. wdsiemer ii
So, I'm adding Adonais-type fonts for Greek Restaurants to the list... Next to be added to the list? Scripts (e.g. Brush Script/Monotype Corsiva/Edwardian.

Go Crazy!
FREE Adonais Font
