So, I've been to Paris on various occasions and I can say, I truly love and appreciate French cuisine. Petit Trois is a French bistro offering French food without the fuss of paying for high-end modern sophistication. It's the infamous Ludo Lefebvre's toned down restaurant from his other Trois Mec. Simple, comfort French dishes basically comprises the menu. You would expect complex flavors with typical French sauces that would take hours to make, but unfortunately, the food falls short of delivering just that.
Located in a weird strip mall next to a donut shop, the restaurant offers parking with valet only. There are no reservations, just walk-ins. A large bar with an open kitchen encompasses the majority of the restaurant; no tables, just counter seating and stools with limited seating. The decor reminds me of a bistro in Paris, so I gotta give him credit for bringing a bit of France to Los Angeles.

Overall, I wasn't overly impressed at Petit Trois. The place is pretty tiny, but I do like the fact you can see the chefs cook with the open kitchen. The valet service seems pretty unnecessary when the restaurant is slow, especially when I can see tons of parking spots where I can park the car myself. The standout dish is the omelette and the free baguette that they offer you. Oh, and the Normandy butter that they provide with the baguette is simply amazeballs! I want to swim in it because it's so freakin good, and it's a plus that it's free!
