Regalis X Ludo Lefebvre

Commonly called, “American’s French Chef,” Chef Ludo Lefebvre is considered one of Los Angeles’ most influential chefs.

His inventive and refined style of cooking has been a staple in the L.A. culinary scene for two decades, from his first Michele star-winning restaurant, Trois Mec, unassumingly nestled into a strip mall, to Petit Trois, a finalist for James Beard Best New Restaurant, and LudoBird, a fried chicken restaurant located at the STAPLES Center.

In addition to starting several successful restaurants, Lefebvre has authored two cookbooks, Crave and LudoBites, and was featured in Season 5 of the Emmy-winning PBS program Mind of a Chef as well as his own home-cooking series which he produces and stars in called Ludo à la Maison.

In 2015, the prestigious Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres honored Lefebvre in his home country of France, and Relais & Châteaux also named him one of the 50 Greatest Chefs in the World. Lefebvre has additionally received the acclaimed Mobile 5 Star Award at two different L.A. restaurants, Bastide and L’Orangerie, as well as multiple James Beard nominations, including Best Chef West in 2017 and Outstanding Chef semifinalist in 2020.
