Grand Lux Cafe

Drag in all your Mag Mile shopping bags and don’t fret about the worn-looking jeans you’re sporting–you won’t get any dirty looks here, just friendly, attentive service and a (somewhat) solid meal in an unpretentious environment. The spacious second-floor perch is decked out with marble floors and tables, curvy velvet-upholstered booths, and vaguely Greek-inspired wall mosaics. The menu cuts a broad global swath: pasta dishes and oven-baked pizzas; flautas and quesadillas; and Asian additions like the duck pot stickers and crispy Ahi sushi rolls.

Lovely, convenient, and affordable place to grab a bite to eat on the Magnificent mile. I came here late night as it was one of the few restaurants open really late and the service was quite wonderful. The food was okay but I wasn't expecting much more than your typical American soup and sandwich type place. The restaurant itself is quite gorgeous and large, with some of the rooms having very high ceilings so you can comfortably dine while enjoying the sights.

The only time I have ever gone to this place was a few years back for a close family friend's wedding reception. I was really surprised that they were going to have it in a cafe, but little did I know that they have this amazing space that you can rent out for private parties, meetings, etc.. The food was delicious - everything from the appetizers to the main course was presented great and it taste really good. I absolutely loved the art deco type decor around the restaurant. I would definitely stop in again while shopping along Michigan Ave., since it's only a few steps away.
