Top Round Roast Beef hopes to put a new spin on a retro quick-service favorite — the roast beef sandwich — when it opens next week in Los Angeles.

The concept, which will offer a menu of roast beef sandwiches, curly fries and frozen custard, will debut on June 17. Top round is a collaboration between four fine-dining chefs and operators, most of whom met while working for Mina Group’s various restaurants, including Los Angeles’ now-defunct XIV.

Those involved include Anthony Carron, chef/owner of Los Angeles’ 800 Degrees pizza concept; Noah Ellis, co-owner of Red Medicine in Beverly Hills, Calif.; Steven Fretz, most recently executive chef for celebrity chef Curtis Stone’s group; and Jamie Tiampo, an investor in New York restaurants dell’anima, L’Artusi and L’Apicio, operated by Epicurean Management. Los Angeles-based Top Round Parent LLC will operate the concept.

The idea for Top Round came from late-night conversations about great sandwiches and regional variations on roast beef across the country, Carron told Nation’s Restaurant News. Other than Arby’s, no national chains specialize in roast beef sandwiches, he noted, and most quick-service concepts rely on processed roast beef.

“No one’s tried to update it and modernize it,” Carron said. “We had the better burger trend, but we said how come nobody’s thought to make a better roast beef sandwich?”

Top Round will use meat sliced from slow-roasted, whole top round cuts of choice beef.

“The goal is to offer something that’s wholesome, made-to-order and fresh, but still quick serve,” Carron said. “We want to be the In-N-Out Burger of roast beef.”

The menu will include six composed sandwiches, all served with au jus and special seasoning on a butter-toasted bun, and ranging in price from $4.75 to $6.45. Options will include Horse in the Hole, with horseradish cream, Provel cheese — a Midwestern favorite — and sautéed mushrooms; and Beef on Weck, featuring a German-style kummelweck roll topped with kosher salt and caraway.
