The Taix family has been running this French restaurant since 1927, and in this location as a virtual Echo Park landmark since the early 1960s. There are six banquet rooms, as well as a 21-&-over live-music bar. For all of the European elegance of the banquet rooms, it's in the restaurant's 321 Lounge that Taix feels warmest and homiest. In recent years, the bar's humble floor-level stage in front of a simple brick-wall backdrop has borne witness to a surprising diversity of crucial local musicians, ranging from straight-ahead country-rock dreamers to truly out-there funk-jazz experimentalists. Low-key indie rock bands trade off with raging instrumental surf combos, followed by sweet pure-pop balladeers. As wild as the music sometimes get, the restaurant has a contrastingly traditional and continental ambiance, due in large part to a menu that's heavy on rustic French fare like duck a la orange, braised rabbit, butterflied trout, onion soup and escargot. Naturally, with such a fervent Francophile emphasis, the restaurant and full bar uncork a broad selection of fine French wines. Valet parking is available in Taix's lot, and metered parking can be found on the street. No cover.
