The Bazaar – DineLA 3rd Stop

The Bazaar is by José Andrés, chef and owner of ThinkFoodGroup (TFG), have plenty of awards under his belt. His newest restaurants are in Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas named Jaleo, China Poblano and é. There’d definitely lots of really good reviews about The Bazaar all over the net. Bazaar has a tapas type of dining, basically you order a bunch of appetizers and share it among the table. The idea of tapas is kinda like asian hot pot, it encourages conversation as people will not be totally focused on eating their own entree. Read: socialize.

We had a reservation of 8 and when our party, L L Y J W G C, arrived we were seated promptly. The general atmosphere was rather loud with the dining area mellow lighted, posh looking yet casual. It was then followed by a little drama… The server came to our table and introduced himself and said that dineLA was only for a party below 6 and we had to order from a regular menu as their kitchen and chefs could not support such a big party. so we asked for the table to be split into 2 tables of 4. Apparently the restaurant will be fully booked till 10.45pm unless we ordered from the regular menu. So we were kinda out of luck. Anyway after talking to the waitress a little we managed to get a table of 4 and 4 at the bar counter. Felt the waitress did quite a good job in mitigating the situation and compromising. When I got home, I did a quick search on it and I couldn’t find anywhere that they didn’t serve the dineLA menu to a party of more than 6. So if you are taking a party of 6 for dineLA, you should definitely call to make sure and if require, split the booking into 2. Anyway in short, we got our tables and let the food do the talking..

The appetizer that almost everyone would start off with had a interesting idea of an air bun basically it was hollow and had a layer of warm melted cheese topped with Wagyu beef.

Right after the appetizer, everyone has a choice of 3 main entree tapas and we just got a bunch of different dishes and shared among the table. Everything tasted so awesome and my favorite being the sea scallops.
