The Taix Family are the third and fourth generations of a family of sheepherders and bakers from the “Hautes-Alpes” in southeastern France who immigrated to Los Angeles around 1870. In 1912 Marius Taix Sr. built a hotel called the Champ d’Or in downtown Los Angeles’ French quarter. In 1927, Marius Taix Jr. opened Taix French restaurant within the hotel serving chicken dinners for 50 cents at long “family-style” tables. Diners could choose private booth service for an extra quarter. Taix’s novel food, unique service and affordable prices make it a Los Angeles institution.
The present location opened in 1962 and carried on by Marius’ son, Raymond Taix, who made sure that the character of the restaurant remained unchanged.
Now in 2023… Owner Michael Taix, the son of Raymond Taix, whose passion for French Cuisine and Wines has resulted in an extensive, Award-Winning wine list which has to date, proudly served more than three generations of Angelenos and World Travelers, and We look forward to serving You and Your Family for many generations to come.
