LAX gets wings? Ludo Fried Chicken may land in Terminal 4
Chef Ludo Lefebvre may be bringing his Ludo Fried Chicken (also known as LFC) to Los Angeles International Airport. Dubbed Ludo Vite, the concession stand is part of Delaware North Cos.' proposed food and beverage bid for LAX, under consideration by the airport.
Lefebvre couldn't be reached because he is recovering from back surgery. But expect a menu similar to the Ludo Bites Truck's, which features Provencal pepittes, fried chicken balls infused with herbes de Provence and rosemary; honey-glazed garlic wings; and chicken strips. Ludo Vite is proposed for Terminal 4, where American Airlines and American Eagle, Cathay Pacific and Qantas are located. (A chicken-and-biscuit-with-maple-butter breakfast on your way to Hong Kong?)
The proposed contracts for the overhaul of restaurants at LAX has been hotly debated, but the L.A. City Council late last year approved the first round of concession bids, including one involving Delaware North.
Also in the works may be a concession from chef Josie Le Balch of Josie restaurant in Santa Monica, says Delaware North.
