I’ve been hearing from startled readers that Truxton’s American Bistro has unceremoniously disappeared from the corner spot at 14th and Santa Monica Blvd in Santa Monica. Truxton’s opened this location in 2013, and was a solid neighborhood lifeline on an otherwise desolate stretch of Santa Monica Blvd. It was able to survive The Pandemic with take-away and outdoor seating, so it’s a bit shocking that it pulled up stakes so abruptly. It appears that the Westchester and Torrance locations remain open.
I was very surprised. I went in there a lot and it was always busy. The food was really good. I don’t understand why they closed and they had added on.
People are genuinely shocked and saddened. It was beloved by the neighborhood. Best,TRA
I drove past and noticed a “LEASED” banner over the for lease signs. Any news about what’s moving into the space?
