Piero Selvaggio’s Primi al Mercato Shutters in Santa Monica Place

Last night we spoke with a rep at Richard Sandoval’s Westside stations who assured us the axe was far from falling on the restaurants at Santa Monica Place, despite the recent shutter of Chris Yeo’s Xino and multiple conjectures to the contrary. This morning greets us with news that one of the rooftop market’s eateries is calling it quits. Feast reports that The Valentino Group’s Primi al Mercato, Piero Selvaggio’s Italian restaurant and bar in The Market component of the mall, closed on Monday. It is, however, survived by Selvaggio’s nearby meat and cheese market. At least, as of this writing. [Feast]
