Famed for its long lines, loyal fan base and deep love of the humble egg, Los Angeles-based Eggslut is expanding to The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.
A former food truck and now a must-visit locale inside Downtown L.A.'s Grand Central Market, Eggslut is run by owners chef Alvin Cailan and manager Jeff Vales. Their 20-seat counter spot specializes in simple but elevated breakfast sandwiches, like a bacon, egg and cheese made with "hardwood smoked bacon, over medium egg, cheddar cheese and chipotle ketchup in a warm brioche bun."
Other favorites include the $9 Slut, "a coddled egg on top of a smooth potato purée, poached in a glass jar and served with a demi baguette," and the $7 Fairfax, made with "soft scrambled eggs and chives, cheddar cheese, caramelized onions and sriracha mayo."
In Los Angeles, opening hours are 8 a.m to 4 p.m, but in Las Vegas Eggslut is already promising it will be open late weeknights and weekends, with the possibility of 24-hour service in the future. No arrival timetable beyond "Opening soon" has been announced.
Last year, chef Cailan spoke with Eater about expansion possibilities and explained, "I'm not a strong believer in multiple locations, but if there's a way I can control the prep and be able to make sure that the food tastes the same, I'll do it."
