The “Traveling Diva” invited me to attend the 90th Anniversary of TAIX, a french country cuisine restaurant in the Silverlake, Echo Park area at 1911 W. Sunset Blvd.

Pleasantly surprised , I went and enjoyed a wide variety of tasteful temptations of hors d’oeuvres from beef burgundy, shrimp ceviche, truffled macaroni and cheese, mushroom caps with garlic escargot de Bourgogne, succulent frog legs that melted in your mouth, petit toasted crab and cheese finger sandwiches following a number of other treats for dessert. My favorite dessert was the Mousse au Chocolate Noir. TAIX spoiled our palettes with a taste of France and wine. All that was missing was the Eiffel Tower! They have one of the most extensive wine collections in the Los Angeles area and are one of the few restaurants, nationally, that can say they are a fourth generation cuisine!

Raymond Taix gave a heartfelt speech celebrating the ancestry of his family’s french food. In 1912 Marius Taix Sr. started his legacy of treating everyone with his culinary delights in the downtown Los Angeles French quarter. His affordable prices back then and still today make this a must for everyone’s needs for lunch , dinner, wine tasting, dessert and coffee or for just in a drink at their bar. Their banquet hall can accommodate your next business meeting, anniversary, birthday or any kind of celebration. After looking and having a taste of their food, friendliness and seeing the banquet hall, I am now thinking of having my wedding banquet there. The spacious banquet hall has plenty of room for a band and dancing…all at affordable prices!

Treat yourself to a visit to Taix, for a romantic or family treat. Raymond Taix has preserved the ambience of Taix since its opening in 1962. The décor is as classic as is the food and wine at unbelievable prices. Due to the popularity , I would recommend making reservations.

Check out their menu at taixfrench.com. Their entrée’s ,soups and the chef’s special dessert change daily. I am going back next week for their Baked Onion Soup and Coq au Vin, Braised Lamb Shank and I have to have more of their Mousse au Chocolate Noir! Who ever would have thought that such exquisite french food and fun was available in this part of the Los Angeles area. Bon Appétit.
