Another day, another closure. Thanks, recession! See something shutter? Drop it in the tip jar.
1) Marina del Rey: A tip from a Westsider about Le Marmiton on Admiralty Way: "First the one on Montana Ave in Santa Monica closed. Now the one in MDR is gone, with absolutely no trace: no signage/blacked out windows..." And disconnected phone. [Eater Inbox; photo]
2) Pasadena: The Gaucho Grill on Colorado Boulevard, right next to the Barnes & Noble and Starbucks in Old Town, has closed. That's some prime OT restaurant space right there. Permits for something called 1810 Restaurant are filed to replace it, but we have nothing more than that. How many Gaucho Grill's are left now? [EaterWire]
