Maybe Boss remembers that LudoBites pop-up you scored him tickets to four years ago… Or the pork belly slider he had at Animal four days ago. Probably not, you’re under appreciated. Regardless, if the “Trois” name isn’t enough to get Boss there, you’re not the problem — with their combined powers, chefs Jon, Vinny and Ludo have more or less defined this decade’s food in LA. They crush it ubiquitously. Trois Familia is brunch and lunch only, and their hash browns are executed as perfectly as the toast square under Son of a Gun’s shrimp toast… Or the fried tapioca cube with passion fruit at Trois Mec, for that matter.
Be warned, the line is a hurdle. Limited seats and lots of Ludo fans equates to about an hour wait during peak hours. Figure out how to appropriately communicate that it’s either a weekday thing or a weekend with someone you don’t mind spending an hour on a bench with.
As for the menu, think French Mexican fusion. No idea what that means? Go for the Double Decker taco — mashed potatoes rinsed in butter, wrapped in a giant bed of jack, topped with carrot pico de gallo. I’ve never had a crunch wrap supreme sober, but if I did, I have a feeling it wouldn’t be as good as this one.
Also worth mentioning: the beet tartar tostada. Cornichon, lime, and avocado milk. You’ve never had anything like it and you’ll finish it before you even had a chance to understand why it tasted so good.
Point is, if you’ve ever wanted to power through your hangover listening to Bowie on vinyl at a communal picnic table… Consider your prayers answered. This place vibes so hard, it’s no surprise all your Westside buddies are paying the $20 UberX to get to Silver Lake (besides just to hang with Moby).
