The Ace Hotel New York has the groundbreaking sandwich shop No. 7 Sub, while the Ace Hotel Palm Springs has King's Highway diner, which isn't known for its sandwiches, but I got one there anyway. Specifically, the Breakfast ALT, which last Saturday called out to me as the perfect food bridge between breakfast and lunch.
Like my beloved BLTAE (pronounced BLT-tay), this BLT tosses egg and avocado into the mix, served on a brioche bun. Given that Ace put the "A" first in the name, I found the avocado on mine somewhat paltry compared to my dining companions', so I asked for extra.
They gave me a bowlful, and I fixed it up quite nicely. See what it looked like before the extra avocado
Isn't that a sad amount of avocado? Little did they know that America's foremost sandwich expert was there, tending to her hangover. Only I'm starting to realize I'm just not the biggest fan of brioche; I always want it to have more flavor.
Still, the King's Highway was awesome. I'd happily eat there every weekend. Here's some more photos.
