Support Big Tomys Reopening

In April 2018, a fire that started behind the grill at Big Tomy’s restaurant, got out of control and began to burn within the walls. Though the fire was extinguished quickly, the damage to the interior of Big Tomy's was severe. The roof above the kitchen and serving area was completely destroyed in the blaze.
Big Tomy’s is a small, family-run restaurant serving the West Los Angeles community since 1983.  At Big Tomy's you would find local families, tourists, and people of different ages and backgrounds enjoying classic American fare with a twist. We have been trying to rebuild and reopen this West LA landmark, but have encountered some financial hurdles due to issues with insurance coverage and most recently the Coronavirus pandemic. The owner's borrowing power is maxed out, and we would appreciate your help in bringing this neighborhood joint back to life!

We are reaching out to the community to ask for help in any way possible. In this uncertain time, we know many people are facing hardships and we are extremely grateful for any donation. Thank you!
I am a close friend helping on behalf of the owner.
