The deviled eggs at this casual Valley spot are served with a hefty slice of brown sugar-chili Applewood-smoked bacon adorns deviled eggs. It’s like having breakfast for lunch. Or just, brunch.

Boneyard Bistro

Valley barbecue staple Boneyard Bistro gives their eggs an appropriately smokey twist with bacon, Dijon, smoked jalapenos, and Sriracha.

The Arthur J

A seat at the lounge is required to score the deviled eggs at Manhattan Beach’s mid-century modern steakhouse The Arthur J. But when the spicy eggs come topped with gribiche and dill, bellying up to the bar certainly seems like the way to go.

Ocean Prime

Pinkies might go floating up eating the white truffle and caviar-topped deviled eggs at Ocean Prime, an expansive (if chain-y) surf and turf restaurant in the heart of Beverly Hills.

Catalina Kitchen

There are many reasons to make the trek down to Palos Verdes to visit Catalina Kitchen at Terranea Resort. Chief among them are the bacon-topped, deep-fried deviled eggs that add a whole new level of textural interest to the appetizer.

Jar Restaurant

There may be no more fitting restaurant in all of LA to start a meal off with deviled eggs than one of the originators of mid-century modern style, Jar. Suzanne Tracht puts her spin on the dish by adding a healthy serving of crab to make it extra indulgent.

Post & Beam

These deviled eggs are on nearly every table at this South LA soul food specialist, where the creamy eggs get a bespoke twist with the addition of smoked catfish and radish chiffonade.

Beauty & Essex

Exclusive to the LA location of hot spot Beauty & Essex is chef Chris Santos’ deviled eggs on toast, combining two of the biggest food trends of 2017 for a decadent snack of creamy yolk on buttery Texas toast.

Faith & Flower

Copy Link

It’s unlikely the deviled jidori eggs will ever come off the menu at Faith & Flower, as the starter quickly became a signature dish for the stunning Downtown restaurant. Loaded with housemade kimchi, sesame oil, and black sesame, this fusion dish packs a pungent fermented punch.

Blue Cow Kitchen & Bar

Copy Link

Mendocino Farms’ sister restaurant makes their deviled eggs Instagram bait by dying the exterior with beets before topping the mustardy filling with applewood bacon and candied jalapeno.

The Boardroom

Uni and eggs is a classic pairing, so it only made sense to chef Jean Pierre Bosc to top his deviled eggs with Santa Barbara uni for an extra luxurious delicacy.

Patina Restaurant Group

Manuela

In his review of Manuela, Jonathan Gold describes the deviled eggs as ones “that would not be out of place at a proper Georgia funeral.” As the description would intimate, these are the Southern staple at their best, simply seasoned with pickle relish, Dijon, and paprika.
