Truxton's Restaurant Offers Private Event/Meeting Space Near LAX

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 18, 2006 -- Truxton's, the new American bistro located just over a mile from LAX, offers a private function room for special events and meetings. The Westchester Room accommodates up to 60 for meetings and cocktail receptions and 55 people for seated meals. State-of-the-art AV equipment and free wireless Internet access is also available for meetings and presentations. Menus are customized for each event, depending on the size of the group and the budget.

People can choose from Truxton's widely varied menu, which reflects both classic and ethnic recipes, including everything from Buttermilk Fried Chicken Skewers and Vietnamese Avocado Rolls to a Thai Cobb Salad and Jake's Macaroni and Cheese. Desserts feature such stand-outs as the Childhood Memories, with a "Hostess" cupcake and "Rice Krispie Treats." Truxton's also offers complete take-home, delivery and catering service, including daily office drop-off meals and curbside pick-up service.

"There are many professional people coming to Los Angeles for day trips, and many of them need a meeting room near the airport. We knew that this private function room would be ideal for a lot of their conferences or for casual entertaining," said Truxton's co-owner Tim Foley. "People who live near Truxton's have also told us that they needed a new venue for events and they have already started booking the room for parties, showers and other gatherings," added co-owner John Kaufman.

Foley understands the needs of people who are planning events, drawing upon his experience as the owner of top LA catering company, Red Carpet Catering and his years working in management positions with Famiglia Toscana Rosti, Houston's Restaurants and St. Regis Resorts. Kaufman, who owns Thyme Restaurant Consulting, is also a restaurant industry veteran. He was the former Chief Operating Officer for Rosti and Koo Koo Roo and he was one of the executives who helped grow California Pizza Kitchen from a single restaurant into one of the country's top chains with more than 68 locations. After the launch of this first location, Foley and Kaufman plan to open five to six more Truxton's locations in Southern California within the next 18-36 months.

Truxton's is located at 8611 Truxton Ave., Los Angeles, Calif., 90045. For more information on private events, call 310-417-8789 or visit
