Just Say “Tex”

In 1927, Marius Taix Jr. opened a downtown restaurant featuring 50-cent chicken dinners served at communal tables (25 cents more got you a private booth). Eighty years later, Taix French Restaurant is still going strong under its third generation of family ownership at its “new” Echo Park location, which opened in 1962. Marius’ grandson, Michael Taix, will present the colorful story and vintage photos of this restaurant that has survived eight decades of intense competition and constantly changing tastes. This presentation is part of the EPHS’ quarterly meeting, which is free and open to the public. Date & Time: Wednesday, Oct 10 @ 7 p.m. Location: Barlow Library at Barlow Hospital, 2000 Stadium Way
