It’s been over a decade since chef Ludo Lefebvre debuted Ludo Bites at Bread Bar on the border of Beverly Hills, bringing his Cali-French cooking to curious Angelenos, all while blazing a trail for restaurant-less chefs for years to come. Starting March 3 and running until May 2, the chef will be serving a multi-course menu at Trois Mec featuring the greatest hits from that era. Priced at $125 per person, the menu promises to take nostalgic diners and first-timers through a bite-by-bite play-by-play of one of LA’s most influential dining experiences.

Los Angeles’s dining scene has grown into its own since Ludo Bites’s heyday, which ran from 2007 to 2012. Whether or not his cutting-edge dishes of yesteryear can stand the test of time and find firm footing in a changed culinary landscape remains to be seen. Here’s hoping that the vanilla panna cotta with caviar and caramel finds its way onto the throwback menu. Reservations are available now on Resy.
