Turning the tables at Taix

Talk about setting a precedent. Taix restaurant threw quite the bash Wednesday evening in honor of three employees who have not just worked for the French country-style restaurant for 50 years each but have become part of the legend of this legendary Los Angeles establishment.

Some 186 people crammed into a banquet room to celebrate the milestones of Bernard, Jose, and Fernando, AKA Bernard Inchauspe, Jose Fragoso, and Fernando Gomez. Bernard is the famed waiter, Jose works events, and Fernando tends bar. All three are known for their style and remarkable memories, for being old-school in the best sense. For many, they have been an anchor in our always rapidly changing city.
