Malbec Argentinean Cuisine Closed In Santa Monica

On a tip from a reader (Thanks SG!) I went by cavernous Argentinean steakhouse Malbec to see what was going on.  The signs have been pulled down and their location at 2628 Wilshire Blvd. has been gutted.  The for lease sign in the window confirms that they have indeed permanently closed.  It appears that their other locations are still open.
