And the Name of Ludo Lefebvre, Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo's New Restaurant Is...

After keeping things pretty close to the vest for months, late Friday afternoon Ludovic Lefebvre very subtly verified the world the name of his new collab restaurant with Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo: Trois Mec. He Tweeted, "Me and my two friends are looking for a sous chef for our new little project," and included the email info@troismec.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.
