Looks like a busy next few months for Ludo Lefebvre and the entire team at Trois Mec, as the French-born celebrity chef celebrates his 20 years in Los Angeles with a slew of one-off dinners done in collaboration with high-profile chefs from around the world.
The dining series is to be called "2 Chefs, a Dialogue With Food", and is being put in at Trois Mec in conjunction with San Pellegrino. The first dinner in the series kicks off October 10 and will feature the usual suspects Jon Shook & Vinny Dotolo, with expanding offerings from other big names from then on.
Notable names include chef Taku Sekine from Dersou in Paris on October 12; Daniel Humm from Eleven Madison Park in New York City on October 23; Joshua Skenes of SF’s Saison on October 25; and Jorge Vallejo of Mexico City’s Quintonil on October 26. Most names on the list have James Beard Awards, Best New Chef nods, 50 Best Restaurant nods, Michelin stars, and more recognition under their belts, making this perhaps the largest focused collection of one-off dinner talent the city has ever seen.
Tickets for each 2 Chefs dinner run $150 a person, plus an added 18% gratuity for each check. Tickets are going on sale for each as of September 7 at 10 a.m. on the Trois Mec site, which means you should plan your ticket-buying experience accordingly. These meals are bound to sell out fast.
