Join Chef Ludo Lefebvre for a special dining experience at his new French brasserie, Chez Maggy, in Denver. Chef will host Cardmembers to an exclusive evening at his new restaurant prior to the Grand Opening. Cardmembers will have the honor of getting a first taste and look at Chef Lefebvre’s latest concept; an homage to the city of Denver. The evening will begin with a “French 101” cocktail and hors d’oeuvres reception, where Chef Ludo Lefebvre will teach guests how to order specific menu items in French. Cardmembers will then be directed to their seats where they’ll enjoy a seated multi-course dinner filled with some of the Chef’s favorite classic dishes with a Colorado twist. The meal will also feature wine pairings to accompany each course. As a memento of this one-of-a-kind evening, guests will receive a curated gift bag featuring a signed copy of Chef Ludo’s Crave cookbook, Chez Maggy apron and Le Creuset omelet pan to enjoy at home.

Chef Ludo Lefebvre is one of LA’s most influential chefs, known for his inventive, refined cooking at Trois Mec, which has been named as the Best New Restaurant (2013) and No. 1 Restaurant in Los Angeles (2014 & 2016) by LA Weekly and earned its first Michelin Star in 2019. In 2015, LA Weekly named Ludo, Best Chef in Los Angeles. In addition to Trois Mec, Ludo is the Chef/Owner of Petit Trois, with locations in Sherman Oaks and West Hollywood, and Ludo Bird at the STAPLES Center and within Universal CityWalk, in Hollywood.

In December 2015, Ludo became a “knight” when he received the prestigious Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres award from his home country of France. He has also been named one of the 50 Greatest Chefs in the World by Relais & Châteaux, and was a James Beard finalist for Rising Star Chef, as well as Petit Trois receiving a finalist nomination for Best New Restaurant. Ludo has been nominated for two James Beard Awards in 2017, Best Chef West and for his work on Mind of A Chef. He is the author of two cookbooks, LudoBites: Recipes and Stories from the Pop-Up Restaurants of Ludo Lefebvre and Crave: The Feast of the Five Senses, which sold out and has been re-released as a 10th anniversary limited edition.

Chez Maggy will be famed chef Ludo Lefebvre’s first concept outside of Los Angeles—and located within the soon to be opened Thompson Denver hotel. Overseeing both in-room dining across the property and this 90-seat brasserie (open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner), Lefebvre will blend his signature French style with hyperlocal inspiration from the region’s unique mountain climate, all as an homage to his family. While his first business foray outside Southern California, chef Ludo’s family has always called Denver and the greater region home; chef Ludo’s wife Krissy was raised in Colorado, and the family has built its traditions around spending time in Denver over the past two decades. Chez Maggy is named in honor of chef Ludo’s late mother-in-law, who lived in nearby Littleton, CO.
