There’s been lots of media discussion over the past few days about Petit Trois in Sherman Oaks. The latest Ludo Lefebvre restaurant (his largest to date) is up and running with an all-day menu that swings from French omelettes in the morning to cocktails and hearty mother sauces at night, but now it turns out there could be more to the property in the coming months.
Tucked inside a new Food & Wine piece on the opening of Petit Trois is a tidbit about a different part of the larger Ventura Boulevard building it occupies. Here’s the line:
Plus, the Petit Trois team has a space next door. They could turn into a bakery/market.
There are caveats, of course, and most of them surround the ultimate popularity of Petit Trois over the next few months. If the neighborhood continues to clamor for more (there is already a patio in the works, and delivery/takeout are ramping up), that storefront could be gobbled up for prep and storage. But if not there’s hope for a candy shop with fresh breads and even takeout rotisserie chicken, at least according to the LA Times. They add:
The 4,000-square-foot location also includes the space next door, which will eventually house a marketplace for grab-and-go food, rotisserie chicken, a French bakery and even bonbons from the couple’s daughter Rêve.
That’s exciting news for fans of Parisian breads and sweets, or just of Ludo, Jon Shook, and Vinny Dotolo. Speaking of those other two, the Food & Wine story also hints that, fresh off the acquisition of some prime Brentwood space, the duo is actively searching for a home for yet another Jon & Vinny’s, but up in the Valley. Soon enough, it seems, the trio could be taking over all of Sherman Oaks, one address at a time.
