Cosmopolitan has always been good at collecting restaurants with just the right amount of buzz. And few have been buzzier than Egg Slut, the Downtown Los Angeles transplant notorious for its long lines at the Eastern Market. The lines unfortunately translate to Las Vegas, starting around the corner and down a long hallway from the walk-up diner with limited seating. And what are they lining up for? The namesake Egg Slut features a silky, coddled egg resting atop creamy potato puree in a jar (how hipster), served with toasted baguette slices meant for dipping into the jar or spreading. It’s all so luscious, rich and lusty you can see what’s so slutty about it. If you’re feeling a bit more demure, a concise menu of egg sandwiches are also worth the wait in line. The Fairfax features sriracha-tinged, creamy scrambled eggs, while the sausage, egg and cheese offers just that, as herbed turkey sausage. Eating from jars, waiting in long lines, the constant Instagramming—it’s all so painfully, yet deliciously on-trend.
