If you've ever had a beignet, the powdered sugar-coated fried dough treat made popular by Cafe du Monde in New Orleans, you'd probably jump at the opportunity to sink your teeth into the undeniably delicious guilty pleasure right in Los Angeles. Well the wait is over: Beverly Hills Beignet will open its doors on June 13.
That's quite a delay for the project that was initially slated to open in January. But all good things do come to those who wait, as now the doughnut specialist has announced the signing of pastry chef Lincoln Carson. You may remember Carson's name for all the chef shuffling that took place at Superba Food + Bread, where he worked as executive pastry chef. Prior to Superba, he worked as the corporate pastry chef for The Mina Group.
That experience translates into a beignet menu that runs from the classic powdered sugar version to more creative takes like the Nuseke bacon-stuffed iteration that is served with maple bourbon honey dipping sauce.
Check out the full menu below.
