Tweeted, "Me and my two friends are looking for a sous chef for our new little project," and included the email email@example.com for resumes. That and our run-in with him and his family at Ikea (we all braved it on a Saturday afternoon??) equals confirmation, folks.
It was first assumed the restaurant would be called Trois Mec, but then it was suggested maybe Le Routier would be the name, based off truck stops Ludo visited near his home in the French countryside. Ludo even told us it would not be Trois Mec. And then everyone - Ludo, Shook, Dotolo and anyone associated with the project - kept mum. Oh, how they toy with us all. Turns out this really is the name, which translates to three guys, dudes or friends, and with staffing underway the opening isn't too far off, probably within weeks. We'll keep you posted.
