Chain concept Grand Lux Café was envisioned by David Overton, the guy behind the fun-to-love, fun-to-hate Cheesecake Factory. His new venture skews along the same lines - it draws upon an impossibly crass cultural mishmash of homey bistro fare, Asian stir-fry, pasta, pizza, and even Caribbean flavors to try to please all palates at once. Still, there's something well-articulated about Grand Lux's design. The décor is nothing less than grandiose. Heavy, ornate double doors open into a wide foyer full of wrought iron and creamy marble tile. The bar, positioned dead center from there, has a sort of classic, 1930s-height-of-elegance feel, with granite-topped tables sporting high chairs and a slick black bartop anchoring the action.
