Wienerschnitzel Bites The Dust In Santa Monica

The A-frame of Santa Monica’s fossilized outpost of tube steak chain Wienerschnitzel has been a fixture along Pico Blvd. for as long as anyone can remember.  But alas, no longer.  A reader (Thanks John!) wrote to tell me of its closure at 3010 Pico.  Sure enough, all signs have been pulled down, the place is gutted, and a hastily-written note proclaims it permanently closed.  Wienerschnitzel was founded in Wilmington CA in 1961 and was a marvel of midcentury fast food chains.  Truly the end of an era.
