The Bazaar by José Andrés

I've been to The Bazaar before with my friend Alissa and absolutely loved it; the menu is unique and the drinks are incredible.  The restaurant and its decor is very trendy and very eclectic.

More recently, my friends Ashley, Chris, Michael, Travis and I visited the restaurant as part of DineLA.  Dine LA is a great opportunity to check out new restaurants; they serve up special prix fixe meals so you can get a variety of different foods.  

When I gave our name, they asked me who the gluten free eater was.  I had forgotten that I had listed "gluten free" as a special request when I made the reservation through OpenTable.  The first time I visited the restaurant I was unaware of such a menu, and was happy to open it and see a full smattering of options.

For dinner I opted for the Tortilla de patatas "new way," catalan spinach, endives, and the apples and fennel.  I loved all of my choices, particularly the apple and fennel salad.  It was a large serving of shaved apples with manchego cheese and was cool, crunchy, and delicious.

The Bazaar is a tapas-style restaurant so it's a good idea to visit the restaurant with people who will share with you.  It isn't a choice for those trying to eat on a budget, however; a meal at this restaurant is almost guaranteed to put a dent into your wallet.

Do you love it or do you love it?
