Grand Lux Cafe, Los Angeles opened its doors to customers for the last time on March 19. A couple good peeps and I visited on March 15 to say our final farewell.
My first visit in 2004/2005 with a party of about 20 people is a blur, but I remember tasting three dishes that all seemed very bland. Honestly, the only reason I went on March 15 is because my friend suggested it. This was my second visit. I ordered the Cedar Planked B.B.Q. Salmon, i’m still not sold on the food. On the other hand, I would go back just for the fresh baked box of cookies.
The price of our entrees ranged from $19-$23 and the servings were pretty big. All in all, the experience was favorable and our server was great.
