Trois Mec raises its prices, adds late open seating

Trois Mec just got a little more exclusive. French bistro raises prices but adds open seating after 9:30 p.m.

Trois Mec, the midcity French restaurant by Ludo Lefebvre, Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo, is making a couple of changes, including a price hike.

The restaurant, known for its lottery ticket reservation system, has announced that it is raising the price for its multi-course dinner from $75 to $85. The new price will kick in with Friday morning's ticket release. 

"We've been open for two years and remained consistent at $75, regardless of the fact that the cost of ingredients has continued to go up in those two years," said Krissy Lefebvre, Ludo's wife and business partner. "Being accessible has always been Ludo's goal. We really want to be conscious that our customers are having the best experience possible at the best possible price." 

The restaurant is also adding bread service and a couple of new items to the menu. 

"We are hoping a $10 price increase just sort of fills the gap and isn't too shocking to our guests," said Lefebvre.

Starting May 11, Trois Mec will also have open seatings at 9:30 p.m. There will be approximately six seats available at the bar. Those hoping to snag a seat will need to check in by 9 p.m. Good thing there's a bar at Petite Trois next door, where you can sip cocktails or wine while you wait.
