Truxton's American Bistro

Our Story

The Premier American Bistro

Welcome to the American bistro – where the neighborhood comes together for delicious food and easy hospitality every day of the week. For any occasion or none at all, we invite you to join us and taste how we’re reinventing classics and making them undeniably craveable and totally affordable. Unique flavors are layered into old and new favorites to surprise your palate at every turn, creating wildly approachable dishes and drinks along with interesting wines and craft beer. Come as you are and stay as long as you like, because Truxton’s is your neighborhood bistro. Whether you’re dining in, carrying out, or just stopping by for a bite, we welcome you to get comfortable and dig in.

The first Truxton’s American Bistro location opened in Westchester in 2006, and has been built into the area’s premier casual full service restaurant, providing social and corporate catering services throughout Los Angeles. Our second Truxton’s American Bistro location opened in Santa Monica in 2013 followed by our third in Torrance in 2017.


The Team Building Experience

Founders John Kaufman and Tim Foley attribute a great deal of their success to Truxton’s experienced management team: Executive Chef Greg Schroeppel, Kitchen Manager and Chef Gerardo Zavala, our General Managers Shevaun Fritzius, Stacie Lang and Jocelyn Trujillo, and our catering team led by Sally Monge and Naomi Lizarraga. With friendly service and a warm invitation to come as you are, we treat guests and team members alike with unrivaled hospitality.


How do we do American Bistro?

Truxton’s American Bistro is reinventing classics and serving craveable dishes with unique flavors from around the world, down the street.

As food lovers, we’re thrilled to offer a variety of classic and interesting twists on crowd-pleasing dishes with extra attention to detail – a final touch and layer of flavor that makes our menu extra special and supremely delicious. What isn’t extra are our everyday prices, because we believe great food should be available close to home.
