Here comes another San Fernando Valley project from unstoppable celebrity chef Ludo Lefebvre. Eater has learned that Ludo and his team will open an unnamed Parisian-style kebab shop in the unoccupied corner storefront attached to the busy Petit Trois Le Valley in Sherman Oaks.
While the upcoming restaurant does not yet have a name (though a few have been proposed so far), Ludo’s crew tells Eater that the food will focus on Middle Eastern influences, and will rely on French baguettes instead of pita bread as wrap. The meat itself won’t be cooked on a large vertical spit (as is the case with Turkish-style döner kebabs, ubiquitous across Europe), but instead will be fired off using French and Moroccan-style brochettes, or horizontal skewers.
Construction on the new kebab shop should be getting underway any day now. For a time, the address was rumored to be flipping into a Parisian-style takeaway bakery, but now Ludo — in partnership with longtime collaborators Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo, as well as Victoire Loup — is focusing on the even more snackable sandwiches instead.
Ludo, meanwhile, continues to keep himself busy with a variety of events, video shoots, and pop-ups like his limited run in Beverly Hills from earlier this year. He did close Silver Lake restaurant Trois Familia earlier this year off Sunset; that space is now being turned into a new neighborhood restaurant to be called Eszett.
