Truxton’s Closes Santa Monica Location

Bistro closes after nine years in Santa Monica

By Dolores Quintana

Truxton’s American Bistro in Santa Monica is no more. The restaurant suddenly closed without warning recently as of September 6. The restaurant was established in 2006 with the Westchester location, which is still open at 8611 Truxton Avenue, and the Santa Monica location opened in 2013 at 1329 Santa Monica Blvd. 

The owner of the restaurant chain has not yet responded to our request for comment. 

The restaurant’s website describes its concept and says, “we had a vision of creating a new hospitality experience by developing what we now call the American Bistro. What does that mean? We have a warm and friendly atmosphere with bold food and beverage, which has since exceeded guest expectations. From suits to sandals and home to office, everyone is welcome to enjoy the American Bistro experience.  We have taken on defining the American Bistro experience, utilizing the wide ethnic diversity that makes up America.”

As for the food, the restaurant’s website states, “To keep pace with food and beverage trends, the development team, led by John Kaufman, Executive Chef Greg Schroeppel, and Regional Chef & Kitchen Manager Gerardo Zavala, is constantly reinventing dishes that keep up with the voice of Americanizing classic and international flavors with new twists, working towards the ‘craveable hospitality’. The menu rotates every season to feature new flavors and dishes, keeping the menu fresh. Our slow-roasted meats have become a core part of our menu and depending on the season you can find our 11-Spiced Brisket, Mexico City Al Pastor, or Beef Barbacoa!”
