Petit Trois

Petit Trois is a cozy bar offering classic French fare, headed by Chef Ludo Lefebvre. Located in Los Angeles, it is the more casual counterpart to Trois Mec (which is located next door).


I’ve been wanting to experience Chef Ludo’s cooking ever since his popular pop-up restaurant days and was thrilled when he finally settled into some permanent restaurant spaces. Trois Mec has been high on my to-eat list, but it’s only open on the weekdays, so I haven’t had a chance to dine there yet. Petit Trois though, is open seven days a week. After watching the restaurant featured on the Los Angeles episode of I’ll Have What Phil’s Having on a Friday night, we suddenly found ourselves there the next day.

The restaurant space is quite intimate. There are a few seats at the bar and a few table alongside the back wall. We were able to grab two seats at the bar for a late lunch, which also gave us perfect viewing of everything being cooked too.

This fluffy vanilla cake is filled with colorful sprinkles, creating a festive cake perfect for birthdays, celebrations or whenever you need some cake.

I normally only eat funfetti cake at birthday events but I had a huge craving for it recently. So I finally made myself one. After all, it’s someone’s birthday somewhere, right?

Pardon My French Bar & Kitchen opened a few months ago, replacing Heat Bar & Kitchen in Hillcrest. The new restaurant offers a California-French menu and last month we were invited to a private media event for a tasting menu of some of their offerings.

We started the evening with warm crusty French bread– one of my favorite things to eat. Honestly, I think I would have perfectly content eating just baskets of this bread all night.
