Chef Ludo Lefebvre is one of the most influential chefs in Los Angeles dining, pioneering and revolutionizing the culinary industry. After training in France for 12 years with the great masters, Ludo came to Los Angeles and was soon awarded the prestigious Mobil Travel Guide Five Star Award at two different restaurants, L’Orangerie in 1999 and 2000 and Bastide in 2006. From 2007 to 2012, with his restaurant tour “LudoBites” he became known as the “pop-up king” and has been credited with igniting the phenomenon of the pop-up restaurant and establishing its viability as a business model.
Ludo is truly the last of his generation, a classically trained French chef that learned at the hands of the great masters of French cuisine: Alain Passard, Marc Meaneau, Pierre Gagnaire, and Guy Martin. He is a true protégé of the World’s Best Chefs. This training rooted deep in Ludo a culinary consciousness that will always put him alongside the true masters of the craft.
