L.A.’s Famous Eggslut Is Bringing Its Breakfast Sandwich to New York
If there’s anything worth waiting in line for on a Saturday morning, it’s a really good breakfast sandwich. That’s why when the breakfast sandwiches from Los Angeles’ beloved Eggslut arrived in New York on Saturday morning, they sold out before breakfast was even over.
According to Tasting Table, Eggslut chef and owner Alvin Cailan brought his wildly popular sandwiches to the opening of New York's new Chef’s Club Counter. Chef’s Club Counter showcases dishes from chefs around the world, and this weekend that included two sandwiches from Eggslut. One of the sandwiches was the Fairfax, the Eggslut signature sandwich made of scrambled eggs, Cheddar cheese, and caramelized onions on a brioche bun with Sriracha mayonnaise. The second sandwich was called the Soho Salmon, and it was a New York-themed breakfast sandwich designed just for the event. It has pastrami-spiced smoked salmon, fromage blanc, a sunny-side-up egg, Havarti cheese, pickled mustard seeds, and onion on a brioche. It sounds messy, but pretty intense.
Both of the sandwiches reportedly sold out at Chef’s Club Counter by 9:30 a.m. on their first day. There will be a few more opportunities for New Yorkers to try them, because they’ll reportedly be around for three months before the Eggslut residency at Chef’s Club Counter ends. And if the sandwiches do really well, there’s even a chance Cailan could open up an Eggslut in New York.
