He's baaaaa-aaack! Itinerant Chef Ludovic Lefebvre will be popping up with LudoBites once again, but this time in Downtown Los Angeles for a nearly 2-month gig at Gram & Papa's. Word got out late last night as the reservation website was launched, and the Twitterverse went, well, a-Twitter about the news.

For LudoBites 4.0, Lefebvre will continue to dazzle diners with gastronomical wizardry and innovation, letting guests see--and taste--food at its playful, flavorful, and delightful best. The set up at Gram & Papa's is also going to give the likely-enchanted diners an opportunity to see the Chef and his team at work, since the restaurant has an open kitchen design and a small dining room. Says the popular chef of this new pop-up opportunity:

I don’t want to be trapped behind the wall of the kitchen anymore and the open kitchen format at Gram and Papa's will allow me to engage directly with my guests: I want to feel their vibe, be a part of their experience. Not unlike a DJ feeling the beat of his music while he watches the dancing. I want to create an environment that brings people together to experience food together. It is really about creating a community for me.
