By Sam Catanzaro
Pacific Dining Car is closing its 24/7 Santa Monica location and auctioning off the contents of the restaurant.
In a statement, the Pacific Dining Car cited the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic as the reason behind the decision to close the Santa Monica restaurant located at 2700 Wilshire Boulevard.
“Our Santa Monica location is a casualty of the coronavirus crisis,” restaurant management said. “We’re deeply grateful to our staff and customers for nearly 30 years in business on the Westside.”
According to the statement, the Downtown Los Angeles (1310 W 6th St) location will remain open.
In 2004 famed interior designer Tom Hamilton brought “a lavish and extraordinary style” to the Santa Monica restaurant and now these items are being put up for auction. In addition, kitchen equipment is up for auction.
The auction, being held online, ends June 22.
