The Bazaar on a Budget

So, our dirty little secret until this week was that we’d never been to The Bazaar.

When asked about the cocktails at The Bazaar by José Andrés, the Beverly Hills restaurant located in the SLS Hotel, we simply responded with mumbles and derps, like cowards. We know. We know. Yes, The Bazaar is an icon of molecular gastronomy. Yes, it offers up Spanish fare with the avant garde, whimsical twists Andrés is famous for. Yes, it’s crazy expensive. So we recently stopped in to investigate how to have the Bazaar experience without having the bizarre experience of having to sell your blood plasma to pay rent next month.

Here are a few tips on Bazaaring, so that if you drop a (somewhat) reasonable amount of cash you’ll have the most rewarding time.
