Silver Lake’s food scene is about to turn up a notch with the coming of Trois Familia, a French-Mexican brunch concept created by celebrated triple-threat chefs Ludo Lefebvre, Vinny Dotolo and Jon Shook of Petit Trois and Trois Mec, LA Weekly reports. Trois Familia will separate itself from its other Trois cousins by offering a budget-friendly price point that ranges from $5 to $15 a dish, the fusion of French and Mexican cuisine, such as rabbit stew tacos, and a colorfully nostalgic sign to boot. No reservations are needed, and a hanging list will be available for diners to write their name and wait to be called. Slated to open sometime within the next two weeks, Trois Familia will operate out of the Alegria Mexican restaurant space in the 3500 block of Sunset Boulevard last July.

Although the opening date is yet to be determined, owner Nathan McCall is shooting for a quaint, neighborhood vibe and plans to launch with casual daytime service only.
