Ludo Lefebvre

Chef Ludo Lefebvre is writing his own restaurant rulebook and reinventing American classics. Named one of the World\'s 50 Greatest Chefs by Relais & Chateaux, Ludo is renowned for his ability to combine Old World simplicity and New World imagination. After completing his classical training in his native France, Lefebvre arrived in Los Angeles in 1996 and quickly made a name for himself as the Executive Chef at L\'Orangerie and Bastide, two of the city\'s most famous and luxurious restaurants. In the fall of 2007, he launched LudoBites, a restaurant that has no permanent address or phone number. LudoBites is a like a club band that goes on tour and "pops-up" in several locations every year. The smash success of this innovative concept has helped usher in the "pop-up" roving gourmet restaurant movement that has seized the imaginations of chefs and diners nationwide. Lefebvre lives in Manhattan Beach, California with his wife and business partner Krissy, an attorney.
