Grand Lux Cafe is the sibling of the Cheesecake Factory and the third Grand Lux to open in the United States. The same design team that created Cheesecake has filled the space with similar opulent colors, rich appointments and unusual geometric designs.
The global menu offers something for everyone. Appetizers include Buffalo chicken rolls (chicken breast, cheese and Buffalo sauce rolled in a spiced wrapper and fried until crisp) and the grand appetizer platter, a sampling of all appetizers that's big enough for four.
A wide range of entrees includes pasta, seafood, steaks and oven-baked pizzas. Specialties include the chicken Venetian (chicken breast sauteed with mushrooms, shallots, herbs, white wine and a touch of cream) and shrimp scampi (shrimp sauteed with white wine, lemon, garlic, fresh tomatoes, herbs and cream).
Eight of the most popular cheesecakes from the Cheesecake Factory are available by the slice. Grand Lux also has a retail bakery, where you can purchase whole cheesecakes and other house-made desserts to take home. Lunch features several entree-size salads, sandwiches and burgers. Breakfast is served Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.
