The name has been scraped off. Looks like just a refresh job by the same owners. T-Rex had become like an old senile relative in a nursing home - you just didn’t visit anymore because it had no memory of its better days. Not sure when the new format will open.
It is in City Council District 1, so the name makes some sense.
Montero’s bought it from the people who bought it from Haig Krikorian.
Yup, and that’s what surprised me, that he couldn’t right the ship at that spot, because he generally knows how to run a restaurant.
I think T-Rex just had too many ups and downs. Lots of people probably gave up on it. A makeover with a new brand and a new menu seems like a good idea.
