    It wouldn't be an exaggeration to say it was the worst food I've had this year." I left after the 2 appetizers and the first course.

    Plenty of style and cool, but I found the food to be just fine.

    The only signage for this restaurant is for a pizza joint that used to occupy the space--so you know this one’s on the DL. Even the menu is kept secret until you show up for your $85 prix-fixe meal. Read more

    Ludo Lefebvre paired up with Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo to create a musical version of Led Zeppelin - a supergroup of uber-talented culinary minds that produces one of the best tasting menus in town. Read more

    The last two dishes were bangers. Lit my brain on fire. Thank you chef Ludo.

    Prepared for ambivalence but it was the most inventive food I've had all year (and decent value for the level of care, attention, and refinement). Challenging, slightly academic, and very impressive.

    Never had I thought that white chocolate, mashed potatoes, and freshwater eel would taste so delicious together, but it did. The Avocado and tabouli was very refreshing. Not impressed w wine pairing

    Make reservations weeks in advance (pre purchase tickets on line). Get the wine pairings. They know what they'd doing.

    Parties of two get the best seats in the house - at the counter where you can watch incredible food being prepared in the open kitchen.

    This is not the overly precious cooking of the avant-garde. There are no sauce swooshes or pretentious platings or the sense that what you're consuming might be visual art rather than dinner. Read more

    Protip: You can tell a lot about a dude from the way he eats buckwheat "popcorn," the crunchy fried grain that tends to show up before the meal at Trois Mec, the new restaurant from Ludovic Lefebvre. Read more

    For all of its maddening drawbacks, Trois Mec is the closest thing in the United States to the ecstatic improvisational cooking at Parisian bistronomy shrines such as Frenchie and Le Chateaubriand. Read more

    It's a little tricky getting a reservation however it's more than worth the extra effort. Ludo is the mad scientist of haute cuisine

    get the supplement dish-well worth it and if you're a pescatarian, let them know ahead of time for some alternative tastings

    Lefebvre’s rich, fluffy potato pulp with brown butter, onion soubise and laguiole cheese is the standout fave of foodies.

    Meals must be purchased in advance off Trois Mec's website. Including tip but excluding alcohol, the nightly prix fixe amounts to nearly $100 a head.

    Amazing event eating - you buy your ticket in advance on (tix go on sale every other Friday at 8am for the following 2 weeks). Pro Tip - ask to sit at the bar to see Ludo cook up close!

    Ludovic Lefebvre is one of the greatest pure chefs ever to cook in Los Angeles. Trois Mec is the first place that has ever been his own, like a private club that happens to serve delicious cuisine. Read more

    C'est plutôt bon, mais il y a toujours un truc en trop dans les plats, en tout cas à mon goût. Dans le cas présent, un peu moins ce serait vraiment mieux. Irancy a 90$ vraiment ?
