Last night, cult-favorite Los Angeles breakfast chain Eggslut made its NYC debut to, well, much fanfare. The eatery's founder, Alvin Cailan, joined chefs Jean-Georges Vongerichten and George Mendes to toast the opening of Chefs Club Counter with Stephane De Baets, a new "fine-fast" concept that takes elevated eats to the casual masses. An offshoot of Chefs Club, where world renowned dishes come together for extended restaurant residencies, the Counter will offer quick and affordable bites from famed chefs, without all the fanciness of a traditional supper club.
Cailan's breakfast sandwich offerings include the Fairfax (cheddar cheese, caramelized onions, chives, sriracha mayo, and of course, eggs) and the Soho Salmon, made with thinly sliced fish, pickled mustard seeds, fromage blanc, a melted slice of Havarti, and a sunny-side-up egg. Chefs Club Counter will also be serving up dishes from Jean-Georges and George Mendes. Click through for your first look inside!
