Mother's Day 2017. Sister said, let's to to Taix, never been there. Whaat?!!!! Growing up we did not eat here, don't know why the family preferring to eat at Musso and Frank's Grill as the food at Taix is much better. Arriving 10 minutes late our reservation had been filched by another party, first time for this as well. Our Quebec born waiter Vincent did a most admirable job handling the whims of Mom who's 89 and is used to getting her way. We like to start any meal with a communal appetizer, generally calamari. Tender and not overly breaded it was a different version of what you generally get and was promptly disappeared. Soup of the day was Split Pea and is delivered in a large tureen so even if you didn't order it there will be enough for a decent taste. I decided to try the Sunday special Cassoulet. Marvelous, so rich and tasty I imagined the French army under Naploleon eating Cassoulet and marching to Moscow. Immediately I mentally made plans to return on a Sunday to have this dish again. The decor has not changed much over the years and while it might seem a little fancy for an average night out Taix is not stuffy and the area continues to revitalize itself. Mom got a thrill when she saw they had a Peach Tart on the dessert menu, she must be from Georgia as she will eat peaches anytime anywhere. We closed down the dining room that night and bid les freres Taix adieu for a little while at least.
