There's A Beverly Center Surrounding This New Eggslut

The Beverly Center has been undergoing a $500-million-dollar facelift for over a year now, and the sprawling La Cienega mall's new-and-improved food hall is shaping up to be worth the wait.

Instead of hunching over a sad Starbucks panini, Beverly Center patrons will be brunching at a brand new Eggslut location slated to open on the mall's ground floor, close to Cedars-Sinai, reports Eater. Finally, you'll be able to dig into a greasy sausage, egg and cheese sandwich and then go straight to your physical; your doctor will be thrilled.

The Beverly Center's new ground-floor restaurants will all be up and running by the time the mall's renovation is completed in late 2018, a spokesperson for Taubman Centers Inc., the development company behind the center, told LAist.

The Beverly Center's culinary makeover will also feature Italian seafood from James Beard Award-winning chef Michael Mina when the renovation is complete next year, the L.A. Times reports. Mina's restaurant, Cal Mare, will occupy a 8,200-square-foot swath of the Beverly Center's ground floor, sharing space with an L.A. branch of John Kunkel's Miami and Vegas-based fried chicken joint Yardbird, and an as-yet-unnamed barbecue stall from NBA wife Ayesha Curry. (We can only hope that Riley Curry will bless us all with her presence at the opening.) Ramen from SF-based chef Ken Tominaga, and poke from Chopped winner Gerald Chin will be on offer too, of course; after all, what's an L.A. mall without Japanese food?
