Los Angeles: The Bazaar

465 S. La Cienega Blvd. , Phone: 310.246.5555

Reviewed by: Wendy and Rob from CA, review #3776

When: 2011

The Bazaar is an evenings’ entertainment. There are different rooms offering, many, different delights. A Jose Andres venture.... much more than a restaurant

Directions: The Bazaar is in the SLS Hotel, the website has a directions page

A Jose Andres restaurant, but ‘restaurant’ does not due this place justice, it is so much more. The Bazaar is an evenings’ entertainment. There are all sorts of rooms, offering many different delights.

We started at one table, ordered drinks, tapas and a couple of main courses - the flavors were all good and the choices well chosen, giving us a good sampling of their offerings.

We had; olives ($10,) stuffed piquillo peppers w/ goat cheese ($11,) green asparagus tempura w/ a sauce ($9,) wild mushroom rice ($11,) sauteed cauliflower couscous ($9,) butifarra Senator Moynihan, Catalan pork sausage, white beens & mushrooms ($12) and a few other plates. They were all very good, not a single thing was wrong. I imagine we would order many of these plates again.

For dessert we were taken to another room, and seated at high bar stools and a long counter-top table, with rows of candies, petit fours, slices of pies, ropes of candy, bon bons, you name it - all displayed on long counters of pink, for our picking. They call that room The Patisserie, and it is perfect. The sweet delights were heavenly, priced per piece/item $1,$2,$3...

What a fun way to dine. The visual senses were as well fed as the taste buds. You could easily start in their bar - I think they have several theme rooms, then be moved for your tapas course and then moved again for pastries, candy and fluff, then back to the bar for more fun. But first for your shopping pleasure are the display cases, filled with all sorts of fun things to think about.

This is a very hip and happening place, lots of short dresses, hiiiigh heels, and good looking young people - male and female. We are older and did not feel out of place. The energy was good.

There is valet parking.
