Ludo Lefebvre & pals run a tiny, reservations-only global spot with a tasting menu & open kitchen.

Trois Mec Logo


Trois Mec is the vision of Ludo Lefebvre, in conjunction with partners Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo. Opened in June 2013 in an old pizza parlor in a strip mall, Trois Mec, which loosely translates to “three guys”, offers an ever-changing multi-course tasting menu. The old Raffalo's Pizza sign still hangs above the door outside, but that was the intention. It started as and remains an unpretentious fine-dining experience.

In its first year, Trois Mec was named the #1 “Best New Restaurant” by Los Angeles Magazine and LA Weekly, earned a top spot in the “Top 101 Restaurants” list by Jonathan Gold, critic for the Los Angeles Times, and garnered the #1 “Best Restaurant Dish” by Food & Wine. Since then Trois Mec has earned continuous praise and rave reviews, including continuing to be in the top 10 in Jonathan Gold’s list as well as being named the #1  “Restaurant in Los Angeles” by LA Weekly for three additional years. In 2015, Ludo became a “knight” when he received the Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres award from his home country of France. On June 3rd, 2019, Trois Mec was awarded one Michelin Star in the 2019 California Michelin Guide. 

We offer a 5-course tasting menu each night at $110 per person plus tax and service charge, and the option of a 4-course menu at $80 plus tax and service charge every Tuesday-Thursday which varies depending on seasonality and availability. We find and source the best ingredients possible to serve nightly. In addition to our regular menu, we offer a vegetarian tasting menu as well.

To pair along with the 5-course menu, we offer two wine pairings, Classic and Reserve, and one non-alcoholic pairing. Additionally, we offer one wine and non-alcoholic beverage pairing for our 4-course menu. A full wine list is also available and our service team would be happy to help with beverage options once your party arrives. If you would like to bring your own wine, we offer corkage at $50 per bottle with no bottle limit.
