Grand Lux Cafe is not just a reproduction of a Belle Époch Parisian, Viennese, or Belgian Café, it is also a lively and popular spot in Dallas for families and groups of all sizes to enjoy fine food and drink from a huge and varied menu. Tonight, while I was there as part of a media event, there was, in one of the other groups, a wedding party! Bride in whites, groom in tuxedo, orchids, everything!

One reason for the popularity of Grand Lux Cafe is that although the historical architecture remains a piece, the menu is regularly updated. We went to try the new additions (liquid and solid!) and all passed the deliciousness test!

Fried Provolone
Fried Provolone. Provolone and Creamy Fontina Cheese Coated with Parmesan Breadcrumbs and Fried Crisp. Served with Marinara Sauce.

Bluegrass Martini
Bluegrass Martini. Basil Hayden Bourbon, Dry Curacao, Agave, Fresh Lime.

Garlicky Shrimp

Good French bread has a crust that should lacerate the mouth, leaving you with rivers of blood streaming out of the mouth. This bread passed the test.

The bread will impress you. French crispiness in the crust.
