Spitfire Grill Closing After Almost 30 Years In Santa Monica: New Restaurant Expected

A reader (Thanks Charlie!) sent me this article in the SMDP about the end of Santa Monica’s beloved hidden airport restaurant Spitfire Grill.  According to the article, current owner John Clarizio has sold the restaurant citing that he needs a break.  The new owner is Irish restaurateur Sean Martin, who has had successes in London.  The eatery is to be called The Cloverfield and will feature Italian food in an atmosphere that is reminiscent of a “London Bistro with Southern California elements”.  Spitfire will stay open for a while during the finalization of the sale.
