Have we tired of Trois Mec? Has the novelty of eating in a tiny room behind the guise of a Raffalo’s Pizza sign worn off? Does the food seem less thrilling, the concept less fresh? Not in the slightest. If anything, recent meals have been more exciting, more innovative than when the trio of Ludo Levebvre, Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo first won our hearts more than four years ago with their weird experiment of a restaurant. After a flurry of “snacks” that might include foie gras beignets and a tiny, tangy mustard crème brûlée, you’ll be served five courses of delicious oddities such as sesame tofu with smoked strawberry, eggplant and olive; or roasted lobster in carrot juice with charred pineapple and house-made vadouvan spice butter. Supplemental courses often are available — recent examples include charred sweet potato with onion cream and caviar. With no supplements, the experience will cost you $110 per person including tax and tip (bought ahead of time as a nonrefundable ticket). The music will be loud, and the wine pairings, should you choose to go that route, will be wonderful. It all feels as vital and riveting as it did from the get-go. —Besha Rodell
