The Premier American Bistro
Truxton’s American Bistro has introduced a new type of dining experience serving a wide variety of classic and ethnic American dishes with a twist, at everyday prices. Our experience is for people who love food and a great place to enjoy it.
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.
The Team Building the Experience
Our Founders, John Kaufman and Tim Foley, set out to develop the premier casual full service restaurant celebrating American cuisine, while defining what is an American Bistro – similar to how PF Chang’s defined the Chinese Bistro. Their vision came to reality thanks to successes in previous executive/management positions with California Pizza Kitchen, Houston’s, Koo Koo Roo, Rosti, and more, plus a collection of family recipes and great space ready for loving development on Truxton Avenue, near LAX Airport.
John and Tim attribute a great deal of our success to Truxton’s experienced management team: Executive Chef Greg Schroeppel, Kitchen Manager and Chef Gerardo Zavala, our General Manager Shevaun Fritzius, and our catering team led by Kristina Miramon. This passion for an American Bistro cuisine experience has fueled expansion plans which are underway.
What is an American Bistro?
Thousands of people each week enjoy our American Bistro's warm and inviting ambiance, plus our dine-in and catering menus which are carefully designed to create just enough variety for you to eat the way you want. We offer a full bar and wine list, private dining, a la carte weekend brunch, an annual wine tasting series, a BistroKids™ menu, and multiple ways to order and receive your food from online to curbside.
Taking inspiration from America’s diverse mix of classic and ethnic dishes, we offer choices from healthful to deliciously sinful food and drinks. Our Crate to Plate Philosophy is simple. We work with local farmers and food suppliers to offer you freshly prepared, natural products, like our hormone-free Myers Ranch beef that we use for our burgers and brisket.
What is American Cuisine?
American cuisine is often described as a “melting pot” of dishes and ethnic origins. It is better defined as a “salad” with diverse but distinct components that do not lose their identities in the mix. We believe that menu items found on so many menus, like the now famous Chinese Chicken Salad or Fried Calamari, are as American as a Hamburger and Apple Pie.
