Ludovic is looking good at Breadbar
Eating L.A. can't wait to try Ludobites, a series of small plates that chef Ludovic Lefebvre is doing Tuesday through Friday evenings at Breadbar on Third St. When we stopped in for a gravlax sandwich on a fleur de sel baguette today, the tattooed titan of the kitchen was hunkered down at a corner table working on the menu, which changes every day. It's sponsored by the Cheese Store of Beverly Hills, so there's nearly a dozen cheese selections ($6 per plate) like Moliterno truffle and Fourme d'ambert with all kinds of condiments like June Taylor's spiced pear butter and homemade harissa. Vegetable dishes like red beet gazpacho are $6, while meats and fishes like tarama, lomo and proscuitto are $8 a plate. Dessert sounds promising, too, with red jalapeno chocolate mousse and milk risotto with vanilla. There's one entree dish of the day at $15 -- yesterday it was lamb moussaka with citrus and carrot. Oh, and bring your own wine!
