50 Eggs Opening a Taco Spot?
Earlier today, the company posted a job ad on Instagram seeking various front- and back-of-the-house candidates for a "chef-driven restaurant and bar concept." The picture features Danny Grant, whom 50 Eggs boss John Kunkel hired away from 1826, surrounded by tacos and hot sauces.
We've reached out to the company and will update this post with the response.
The move would be kind of a return to roots for Kunkel, who netted $24 million after he sold Lime Fresh Mexican Grill, his chain of Mexican restaurants, to Ruby Tuesday in early 2012. In the ad, the address for the restaurant is listed as 1439 Alton Rd., which is also the location of the beach's longstanding Lime restaurant.
The opening of a Mexican spot would be another on-trend move for 50 Eggs, and comes just as a handful of places are putting tacos front and center. The company already presides over a trio of celebrated restaurants that captured the public's enthusiasm for fried chicken, Asian cuisine, and Southern fare as they peaked.
