Under the direction of the ceaselessly inventive José Andrés, The Bazaar takes visitors on a wild culinary adventure, presenting old-world delicacies in a bold new way. Spanish food, both traditional and avant-garde, has no more fervent and eloquent champion in America than Andrés, proprietor of the multi-part restaurant and culinary theme park housed in the Beverly Hills SLS Hotel. Whether you choose the tasting menu at the semi-hidden SAAM, comfort food with a twist at secluded sanctuary Tres (vermicelli mac and cheese cooked “like pudding”), Ottoman carrot fritters, sea urchin and avocado steamed buns at Bar Centro, or the best jamón Ibérico in America at Rojo y Blanca — or, best of all, a combination of the traditional and the completely mad that is easily achieved here — you’ll have a memorable, one-of-a-kind experience.

This is a hot LA spot where celebrities go to be seen. Try the table side liquid nitrogen cocktails. -Mike Isabella, Top Chef

It'll be a meal worth bragging about: Carts with liquid nitrogen are wheeled out to freeze drinks, while small plates might have you biting into "lemon air." And did we mention the fortune teller?

Headed by uber chef Jose Andres, expect whimsical molecular dishes with some traditional Spanish tapas in a hectic Philippe Starck-designed mega space. NB, it's not cheap. [Eater 38 Member]

Olives that flood your mouth with flavor. A foie gras lollipop wrapped in cotton candy. The definitive shrimp with garlic. Innocent-looking bites that shoot smoke out of your nostrils.

From its intelligently crafted Spanish cuisine to its flamboyant decor to its accomplished staff, The Bazaar is one of the best new spots in LA to offer theatricality and excellence in equal measure.

A slam-fest for just about all the senses, from the surreal dcor by Philippe Starck to the equally surreal, small-plate sensations by a molecular gastronomy master. Dont ask just eat.

Some strange, some wonderful: encapsulated olives, air breads, deconstructed Spanish omelets, mozzarella balls that explode into liquid, cotton candy mojitos.
