For those of you unfamiliar with the Grand Lux Cafe it is a bigger version of the Cheesecake Factory (same owners). The first one opened at The Venetian in Las Vegas (my favorite hotel) as a 24 hour restaurant. Due to it's huge success they decided to open a few more in places like California and Florida. There is also one in Long Island but being a northern NY suburb girl Long Island is a far trip. This is great news, I think the Garden State Plaza needed more upscale chain eating options. It is something they were really lacking.
Truthfully, I do not have a favorite dish here because I have only been a few times because I have only been to the one in the Venetian but I can recommend the Polynesian Salad, Buffalo Chicken Sandwich and the French Toast. My mom and brother simply love the Warm Pot Roast Sandwich but I do not really eat stuff like that.
There is one thing though that I am a bit annoyed at with GLC. They only serve the sourdough bread here, not the brown bread that Cheesecake serves as well.
OK, let me know what you think of this big news.
