People buy tickets for sports games, for movies and concerts, so why not buy a ticket in advance for dinner? That concept is being tested this morning at a brand new LA restaurant called Trois Mec.

The chef is Ludo Lefebvre, who's made a name for himself at restaurants like Bastide and his own pop-up restaurants known as LudoBites.

His wife, Krissy Lefebvre, is his business partner and joins us on the line to talk about this new business model.
