Dinner for two at The Grand Lux Cafe
Have you heard of Grand Lux Cafe? Over the years I’ve visited Grand Lux Cafe for birthday dinners, dates, and even happy hours. Grand Lux Cafe was created by the founders of The Cheesecake Factory. Although, they are both very similar, Grand Lux has a more upscale contemporary feel, and a more globally focused menu.
When I eat at Grand Lux Cafe, I know I will enjoy delicious food and large portions, so I am always up for a visit. In April, I visited Grand Lux Cafe for National Grilled Cheese Day. Read all about my National Grilled Cheese Day experience at Grand Lux Cafe. I was invited in again for a complimentary dinner to experience some of their new menu items. Their new menu items are:
- Poke Tacos
- Cashew-Honey Kale Salad
- Roasted Pear and Strawberry Salad
- Little Italy Salad
- Brie and Bacon Burger
- Fresh Grilled Salmon
- Chicken Supreme
- “Nashville Hot” Chicken
- Baked Rigatoni
We arrived at Grand Lux Cafe with a hearty appetite and tried some of their new items. I started the night off with their Friday drink special ($6.95) – Pink Lemonade (alcoholic)
Quinoa and Brussels Sprouts Salad: Avocado, Gem Lettuce, Spinach, Golden Raisins, Almonds, Parmesan and Lemon Vinaigrette
Poke Tacos: Three Crispy Shells Filled with Fresh Marinated Raw Ahi Tuna, Avocado, Green Onion, Asian Slaw and Sesame. Served with Wasabi Cream and Pickled Ginger
Brie and Bacon Burger: Creamy Brie Cheese, Crisp Applewood Smoked Bacon, Red Onion Marmalade, Arugula and Mayonnaise
Baked Rigatoni: Layers of Baked Rigatoni, Melted Cheese and Parmesan Cream. Served with Marinara and Our Housemade Meat Sauce with Italian Sausage
One of my all-time favorite desserts:Red Velvet Cake: A Southern Classic with Cream Cheese Frosting
I really wanted to try their Roasted Pear and Strawberry Salad, but they had just sold out that night. I’ll have to try it next time I visit.
Our night out at Grand Lux Cafe was surely delicious! My personal favorite of the night was the Baked Rigatoni. It’s great to see that they are constantly adding new and tasty dishes to their menu. The location we visited was at The Aventura Mall, but they have several locations around the U.S. Find them here: Grand Lux Cafe
