Here’s one way to appease the #TBT-loving hearts of Gen-Xers and Millennials. After serving up ’90s nostalgia in Chicago last year, Saved By the Bell-inspired pop-up diner Saved By the Max is coming to LA soon.
As Los Angeles magazine reveals, the eatery (which is modeled after The Max, Zack and the gang’s stomping grounds in the show’s fictional LA nabe, Palisades) is landing at West Hollywood Gateway. The menu, whipped up by Michelin-starred chef Brian Fisher, will include classic greasy spoon fare named after SBTB‘s characters, like AC Sliders ($9), the Kelly Kapowski sandwich made with “prosciutto, gruyere cheese, Kewpie mayonnaise and whole grain mustard with spicy maple syrup” ($14), Lisa’s Grilled Cheese ($10), the Snack Attack dessert comprised of “Twinkie ice cream topped with strawberry feuilletine, vanilla wafers fresh strawberries, and whipped cream” ($10), and more.
As far as drinks, there’ll be soda, juices, coffee, floats, milkshakes, and more; on the bar side, there’ll be cocktails, spirits, and draft beer.
Of course, the diner’s interiors will be nothing sort of Instagram-worthy, if photos of Saved By the Max’s Windy City pop-up are any indication. We expect to see plenty of retro corners with video arcade games, juke boxes, and more, plus totally ’90s soundtrack and a gift shop (duh).
No word yet on when the diner opens its doors; in the meantime, you can add your name to the list waitlist and check out the menu over at Saved By the Max’s website. We’ve reached out to the diner’s team for additional details; stay tuned for more, of course.
