Calling all Los Angeles and New York-based “Breaking Bad” fans! Now you can eat at the fictitious Los Pollos Hermanos restaurant in advance of the Season 3 premiere of “Better Call Saul.” AMC has partnered with Citizens Parking to bring the pop-up restaurant to both coasts, and our fingers are crossed that owner Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito) will be serving the food in his trademark yellow button-up. In addition, there will be a Gus-themed “Breaking Bad” marathon on AMC April 3 from 9:00 a.m. to 2:10 a.m. that showcases the best of the devilish character. It’s all in anticipation of Esposito’s long-awaited debut on spinoff series “Better Call Saul” later this spring.
Here is the Los Pollos Hermanos location information for Los Angeles:
1345 E. 6th Street, Los Angeles CA 90021
Wednesday, March 29, from 12:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.
Thursday, March 30, from 12:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.
And here are the pop-up restaurant details for New York City:
243 Pearl Street, New York, NY, 10038
Saturday, April 9, from 11:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.
Monday, April 10, from 10:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.
Esposito earned an Emmy nomination back in 2012 for playing the nefarious Gus on “Breaking Bad.” It’s unknown how many episodes the chicken man will appear in “Better Call Saul” and whom he’ll interact with, though AMC does promise that some characters’ backstories will be further illuminated, with “meaningful nods” to “Breaking Bad.”
“Better Call Saul” has earned 14 Emmy nominations so far, including back-to-back bids for Best Drama Series, Best Drama Actor for Bob Odenkirk and Best Supporting Actor for Jonathan Banks.
