The Classic American Diner Takes on a New Look Inside the Beverly Center

Jeremy Fall’s new modern diner opens tomorrow with citywide views

The Beverly Center hasn’t had a restaurant like this in, well, maybe ever. This is Easy’s, a sprawling neo-diner done with vintage touches and some of the best mid-city views in Los Angeles, sweeping from the Hollywood Hills to Downtown and beyond. But really, all eyes are going to be on the burger.

Easy’s is the work of restaurateur Jeremy Fall (Nighthawk, Tinfoil), and comes as a full realization of the burger-specific pop-up he ran ages ago down in Chinatown’s Far East Plaza with Alvin Cailan. A version of that burger still sits font and center but now there’s a whole restaurant wrapping the menu, complete with Formica tabletops, vintage View-Finders stuffed with click-through images of Easy’s menu items, and a full bar. The result is an all-day behemoth that in many ways feels like a big shopping center restaurant — there’s a kid’s menu, brunch, happy hour, and more — while also feeling entirely unique to LA.

In terms of the space, expect 20 seats at the bar and another 90 or so spilling out onto the indoor walkway of the Beverly Center, each with its own sightline out of the tall building. Easy’s is actually the only new full-fledged restaurant fully inside the mall (others, like Farmhouse, Yardbird, and Cal Mare, are at ground floor and face outside), so it should have free reign to capture the families and upscale shoppers that have kept the Beverly Center alive through its arduous remodel. A Michael Mina-branded food hall and several other restaurants are still expected to open next year.

But for now, it’s Easy’s turn. The new age diner opens to the world on Friday, keeping hours from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily (minus Sunday, when they close at 7 p.m.). There’s also a happy hour that runs 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. every single day, plus the ongoing kid’s menu. The opening food and beverage menus are below, and reservations can be made now.

Easy’s Diner. 8500 Beverly Blvd., Los Angeles, CA.
