After celebrating Tiki Night at the Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco, we continued adventuring with culinary treats at The Bazaar by José André, celebrity chef extraordinaire. The Beverly Hills restaurant was a complete spectacle, from the presentation of the tapas dinner to the atmosphere. And the food was truly delicious. I had my doubts at the beginning, admittedly (“What do you mean I need to eat the mozzarella ball with a spoon and not a fork because it will liquify immediately?”), but I loved it so much I wrote a review on yelp. The most surprising part of the experience turned out to be the humble eggplant tempura with honey air. Yes, you heard right. Honey air. Think Pooh Bear with a tiny wooden spoon and a cubit of honey foam. It was my favorite part of the meal… But first, a bit of Liquid Smoke to cleanse the palate for dinner.

You actually move to another part of the restaurant to have dessert. Since I wasn’t in the mood for pastries, we looked at the eclectic objects in the gift store. Did I forget to mention the restaurant is attached to the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills? The restaurant and the hotel both exude a trendy, rock-and-roll, baller lifestyle vibe. In any case, I was tempted to pick up the wax skull with a salamander sitting on top, or the spinning black Medusa candle. What a modern day Kunstkammer!
