Everyone has an opinion about Ludo and his pop up restaurant Ludobites. Whether it's love, hate, or apathy, it's hard to ignore the guy. He is a marketing machine. Ludo is everywhere: he's on Top Chef Masters, he's frying chicken out of a truck at the LA Street Food Festival, or he's frying chicken with Eric Greenspan and Akasha Richmond. Love him or hate him, he's a constant topic in the LA restaurant scene. With all the hype around Ludo, it's no surprise that his next pop up location, a two month stint at Gram and Papa's in downtown Los Angeles, was fully booked within
72 hours (correction, make that 18 hours, thanks Krissy) of the reservation lines opening up.
I told you Chef Ludo would be mixing things up during this engagement. The second week of Ludobites took eaters from an a la carte to prix fixe menu, due mostly to extenuating circumstances, that being the case of the missing sous chef.
