There is something magical about Spanish tapas…particularly when chefs combine it with molecular gastronomy and other cutting edge culinary techniques. Remember Hoja Santa in Barcelona?
So obviously I had to bring mom to The Bazaar by José Andrés before we left Los Angeles. I just knew she would fall in love with the restaurant as much as I did.
Mom was happy with everything we ordered. In fact, she told our server Terrence (who, by the by, is an excellent server so do ask for him when you’re there!) the next time she visited L.A. it would be with a solitary purpose: to eat her fill at the Bazaar again!
I’m certainly not missing out on that trip. Count me in, Lady!
Highlights: the Tortilla De Patatas “New Way”, Seared Mary’s Farm Chicken, “Philly Cheesesteak”, Chocolate Dream Mousse Cake. Mom also ordered the “LN2 Caipirinha” featuring brazilian cachaca, fresh lime and sugar frozen by using liquid nitrogen (tableside service) $20. She LOVED it!
Overall experience: 9.2/10 (service this time around far surpassed my previous experience here in August 2016! Thanks Terrence and Co!)
