Traxx Restaurant

Does anyone have suggestions on what is best at Traxx's Restaurant?

  1. The last time my husband and I ate at Traxx we enjoyed the mussels appetizer, cooked in a spicy tomato saffron broth. Lovely with sourdough bread. We also sampled the venison carpaccio, served with horseradish dijonais. Had to get it. How often do you see venison carpaccio on a menu in Southern California?! We also had the Roasted Half Chicken Under a Brick with Green Chile Posole, Cilantro-Almond Pesto and Fire Roasted Tortilla. The chicken was moist but I found the flavor of the posole and the pesto just a little too busy for this dish.

      Yum. That sounds divine. We are looking forward to visiting Traxx this weekend and will definitely keep all of these suggestions in mind.

    2. Their crab cakes with a chipotle sauce are excellent. Also, corkage is reasonable.

          Seem to recall it was $12 dollars. Might want to give them a call to confirm, though.

      1. Waldorf salad. (Where else are you going to find this?)

          Actually, you can find Waldorf salads all over LA. Even CPK has one.

        2. For lunch, the grilled vegetable sandwich and burger are good choices. Corn chowder is a solid starter as well.

          1. i tried to go here for dinner last wednesday but they closed at 9pm!

            but the last time i went (about a year ago) i ordered almost exactly the same as brieflunchcounter above... liked all the dishes. i dont think the venison carpaccio was on the menu at the time or i would have ordered it, i think we had the crab cake instead.

            the menu doesnt seem to have changed much at all...
