Guest Interview Trois Mec: More than Just Three Guys in a Pizza Place

gf130629trois-mec.jpgJonathan Gold discusses Trois Mec, the much anticipated brick and mortar from Ludo LeFebvre and partners Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo. Known for his popular LudoBites pop ups, LeFebvre has settled down in a 26-seat former Raffallo's Pizza spot tucked in the corner of a nondescript parking lot at Highland and Melrose. The dinner is a set menu (with a vegetarian option) for $75 plus tax and tip. Wine is not included in the price. Instead of making reservations, guests are required to purchase tickets for dinner in advance.
