Ménage à: Trois Mec

 Disclaimer: A meal this decadent, prepared by a Chef this celebrated, will leave Boss feeling smug, satisfied, and absolutely exhausted.

Trois Mec is easily the Los Angeles restaurant opening of 2013. It’s not for everyone – don’t tell the unadventurous cynics – but if you’re a foodie looking for fun, get in line and enjoy the show.

For the first-timers: book a two-person party size and sit at the bar. You’ll be up close and personal with Chef Ludo (if you’re lucky) and his kitchen staff; it really does add to the experience.

Note: Ludo cooks whilst simultaneously selecting the restaurant’s background beats – French rap music from his iPhone. He is a G.

The catch: there is no reservation system here. To be seated, you must set your alarm for 8am PST on Friday, August 23rd (or every other Friday thereafter), and nab dinner tickets online. The food and the methods are equally cutting edge.

The menu: a varying set of five courses and a few snack bites. Above, a steamed and grilled mini brioche bun, painted with sweet clover butter. One was such a tease.

Vegetarians will be accommodated in palate and accompanied by eye-roll, courtesy of the Chef.

At the end of the night, the menu comes home with you. Boss will use it to brag to his colleagues.

Make sure Boss can handle an adventurous meal. Not pictured – the raw beef, served with fermented black walnut, grilled yogurt, and caramelized eggplant. Trust when we say it tastes better than it looks.

Cost varies based on menu items, but floats around $75 per person, or $96.47 including tax and tip, excluding alcohol.

Wine pairing available at an additional $49 p/person, and includes carefully selected treats like alcoholic apple cider from Normandy. Glass pour wine or beer also available.

All sales are final, tickets are transferable. Just go, it’s worth at least one try.
