Burgundy with Anthony Bourdain, overseeing a fried chicken food truck, on set with Nigella Lawson for another new cooking show, and plotting and planning Ludobites 10.0, Ludovic Lefebvre is one busy, busy chef. And, yet, that (plus helping to raise twin babies) isn't enough. Word came that Lefebvre was in cahoots with Vinny Dotolo and Jon Shook (Animal, Son of a Gun) to open a new restaurant concept on Melrose, and Eater confirms that it's true.
"I'm very excited to be with them. They are good friends, and we did some foie gras dinners together, and we just had fun together," says Lefebvre. "And we have the space now, we are in construction. We are still working on the concept. It's going to be a fun restaurant, something new for LA. And something new, maybe something that doesn't exist in America." The fried chicken collaboration between the three alone is mind-blowing.
