This week, Besha Rodell reviews Trois Familia, Ludo Lefebvre, Jon Shook, and Vinny Dotolo's newest addition to the Troic Mec/Petit Trois family. The review begins with the LA Weekly critic fondly reminiscing over her college days, when, after "partaking in a hunger-inducing inebriant," her friends would "rise above the haze of smoke at 2 a.m. and create something great to eat."
Such is the food at Trois Familia, which B. Rod dubs as "high-end stoner food." She describes the French-Mexican mashup as passing the " true test of the brilliance of the stoner chef" with truly delicious, three-star meriting fare. The critic concludes:
You can hate Trois Familia for its complete and utter conformity to Silver Lake's reputation as the most hipster neighborhood in the known universe, for its stack of vinyl next to a vintage record player as decor. You could hate it for its bearded and moneyed bohemian customers, or for the fact that it replaced a long-standing family business that sold Mexican food with no trace of garlic butter. You could even hate it for the food, but it would have to be the idea of the food that bummed you out, the fallacy of French-Mexican stoner hipster silliness. For the taste, for the cooking, for the fun? Nothing but love. [LAW]
