The latest collaboration between Ludo Lefebvre and Animal’s Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo is aiming to feel like a tres Francais neighborhood bar, with classic dishes like steak frites and Lefebvre’s childhood favorite, a Boursin cheese omelette. Unlike its older brother, Trois Mec, where it’s nearly impossible to get reservations, Petit Trois doesn’t take reservations at all. It also doesn’t have a phone number or take cash, and like in France, the tip is added automatically. Look for the tattered mini-mall sign reading Tasty Thai.
Eat: Mussels with fries, beef tartare, croque monsieur, baguette sandwiches at lunch
Drink: Bardot cocktail with Suze and ruby grapefruit, Alain Michaud Brouilly red wine
