The Bazaar

Wow, my experience at Bazaar is a bit of blur. You can thank the 3 extra dirty martinis I had that night. Better yet, I can thank them. They were quite tasty and helped me endure some awkward moments.

I was invited to a business dinner/going away party for a former colleague this past Tuesday. Good thing I wasn't paying for the food. I probably could only afford 2 drinks.

We had a large party, so I believe there was a prix fixe menu. I can't say for sure since I was too busy talking to people and I also don't remember seeing any menus on the table.

I'm not even sure what we ate. But, one thing stands out in particular. The beef topped off with mandarin orange slices. It was fork tender and practically melted in my mouth. When I asked my former boss what it was, he said "I don't know. Beef with orange? Beef a l'orange." Now, THAT was some funny shit.

We had some albacore with orange slices on top too. Hmm.. is that their signature fruit?

I vaguely remember a roll with quail egg on top. That wasn't too shabby.

Not sure what this was, but it was alright

I do recall everyone complaining they were starving. Well, it is tapas and I guess since the table was 80% male, they should have opted for double servings.

Oh ya, make sure you visit the super cool restrooms. They have mirrors everywhere AND the restroom attendant cleans up after every single person comes out of the toilet. Now, that's A+ service.

I would like to come back, but I can't guarantee I'll be sober enough to remember what I ate again.

You're right about leaving here hungry, though the wallet do take a hit. I don't know about Bazaar, I thought the food was fine, but it's more fru fru & scenary than anything else. The Saam Tasting Menu was also disappointing

I haven't been here yet but I know it's going to put a hurt on the wallet. I've heard that the drinks here are very good and very strong.

KFP- ya, it's def all about the scene. LA Paella is 100x better and authentic.

D- the drinks were pretty damn strong!
