Petit Trois, Los Angeles, CA

Petit Trois Restaurant Review

: If you're feeling nostalgic for Paris, at least you can cure that craving for classic French fare at Petit Trois, the tiny bistro from chefs Ludo Lefebvre, Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo. Whereas neighboring sister restaurant Trois Mec only accommodates guests who have purchased "dining tickets" for a tasting menu in advance, Petit Trois welcomes walk-in diners exclusively. It's a tight space with a ledge and stools along the wall and a marble-topped counter facing the chefs at work. By the door is a small area where a few guests can enjoy drinks while waiting to snag seats. French music assists in making you think you're in a cozy restaurant in Le Marais rather than a mini-mall in Los Angeles. From the appetizers, the French onion soup, steak tartare and Burgundy escargots fulfilled the expectations we would have for these classic dishes. The à la carte offerings continue with a croque madame and steak frites (aux poivres or with herb sauce). For dessert, indulge in the Napoleon with thick layers of Tahitian vanilla cream. There is a short list of beers and French wines, along with cocktails and a selection of apéritifs and digestifs. Keep in mind that only credit cards are accepted (no cash) and that an 18% service charge is added to the bill.
