This will likely be one of the hottest reservation scrambles of the coming weeks: As hinted earlier by (scroll down), Chef Ludovic Lefebvre will be popping up in December for a limited engagement of LudoBites (LAist Review) at Culver City's Royal/T. Although the Top Chef Masters Season 1 contender and former Bastide and L'Orangerie head chef is thinking ahead to having his own brick-and-mortar, for right now the pop-up concept is ideal. "[O]ne of the things Lefebvre likes about pop-up operations is that they allow him to offer his food at far more affordable price," notes the LA Weekly Squid Ink blog. The unique location, now host to Hello Kitty's ongoing 35th Birthday fete, gives Lefebvre a chance to experiment with more innovative menu items and make use of the liquor license.

LudoBites will be at Royal/T between December 2-22. Check Lefebvre's website for more details and to make reservations (don't call Royal/T!).
