|Lots happening for Lefebvre|
We suppose that last one is the most intangible link, but it did remind us of a restaurant called Mec that never came to fruition across from what's now Animal. Anyway, if the three are collaborating, that's huge news. Lefebvre has been looking for his own spot since before Ludobites - in fact, not finding the right space is why he started the roving pop-up. And as he stated at his cooking demo at The Taste last weekend (which was confirmed from his camp this morning), he is indeed working on a brick-and-mortar space. Whether it's a partnership with the Animal guys is still unknown. But he's doing a dinner in NYC next month on the heels of his Ludobites cookbook coming out, so whatever is happening won't be happening too soon. Think: book tour.
But seriously, can the dining scene handle these three juggernauts all in one space? Ludo + Shook + Dotolo undoubtedly equals never getting a reservation. Ever. Very exciting indeed. Keep your eyes here for more news.
