Chef Ludo Lefebvre recently celebrated 20 years of cooking in Los Angeles. He is one of the city’s most influential chefs, known for his inventive, refined cooking at Trois Mec, which was the first of his award-winning strip mall haunts.
In 2015, LA Weekly named Ludo the Best Chef in LA. That same year, he opened Petit Trois, a James Beard finalist for Best New Restaurant; a second location was opened in 2018. LudoBird serves fried chicken and has a premium location at the STAPLES Center. In December 2015, Ludo became a “knight” when he received the prestigious Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres award from his home country of France. He was named one of the 50 Greatest Chefs in the World by Relais & Châteaux and was a James Beard finalist for Rising Star Chef. He was nominated for two James Beard Awards in 2017, Best Chef West and for his work on Mind of A Chef and was a 2020 James Beard Semifinalist for Outstanding Chef. Additionally, he received the prestigious Mobil 5 Star Award at two Los Angeles Restaurants, L’Orangerie and Bastide. Upon its return to Los Angeles in 2019, the California Michelin Guide included Petit Trois in the Bib Gourmand and awarded Chef Ludo with one star for Trois Mec. Ludo is the author of two cookbooks: LudoBites and Crave. He starred in Season 5 of the Emmy-winning show Mind of a Chef on PBS.
