Due to overwhelming response for the GAYOT dinner at The Bazaar on November 6th, we are pleased to offer two additional evenings at Saam, the chef’s tasting room at the SLS Hotel at Beverly Hills: Friday, November 13th, and the following Thursday, November 19th. If you were not able to make a reservation originally, here are two more chances to join us. Call 310-246-5545.
From modern American cuisine at SIMON L.A. for the first GAYOT Dinner Series in September, we move to the even more modern style of chef José Andrés at The Bazaar for the next GAYOT Dinner to be held on Friday November 6th at Saam, the chef’s tasting room, located within The Bazaar at the SLS Hotel at Beverly Hills.
Saam is an intimate space with its own décor separated by glass walls from the lively action of The Bazaar. For this occasion, chef José Andrés and his team will create a very special prix-fixe menu of twenty-plus “tastes” for $95 that will include delightful surprises and a complimentary glass of cava for each guest. Wine pairings come in four different categories — Sparkling, Spanish, Global and Sherry — and start at $45 for a flight of four tasting portions.
Among the items to expect on the menu are: olive oil bonbon, Dragon’s Breath (popcorn), Sea urchin with pomegranate air, tournedos Rossini,
During the evening, which will also be the celebration of the first anniversary of the SLS Hotel at Beverly Hills, I will be at Saam to discuss the meal, and why chef José Andrés’ inventive dishes are the talk of the town. I hope to see you there.
Space is limited. Please call 310-246-5545 for reservations.

In my eyes, any excuse is good enough to go to The Bazaar by José Andrés at the SLS Hotel at Beverly Hills for a cube of foie gras wrapped in cotton candy.
So I was especially pleased to find executive chef Jorge Chicas serving it at the second Los Angeles March of Dimes Annual Chefs Event.
A birthday celebration last week took me to dinner at The Bazaar by José Andrés. Two pieces of good news came from the kitchen where chef Michael Voltaggio was cooking that evening. First, the meal was as good as the previous ones we’ve had.
The second was the announcement of the opening of restaurant Saam at The Bazaar by José Andrés tomorrow, April 9th. Saam is a secluded dining room in The Bazaar, which is also decorated by Philippe Starck. In a very private and stylish atmosphere, José Andrés will offer a fine dining version of 20-plus “tastes” or small courses for $120 per person, or $170 including wine pairings. We are very much looking forward to dining there!

A third blog posting about the SLS Hotel at Beverly Hills in one month? That may sound excessive, but there is much to report about Sam Nazarian’s first luxury hotel—we’ve hardly even mentioned the food!
Here’s a sneak peek at chef José Andrés’ cuisine at The Bazaar. Some of his dishes, like his foie gras wrapped in cotton candy, are as extravagant as Philippe Starck’s design. But by the end of the night, you’ll have had, for sure, quite a different dining experience!
Listen to what I said on KNX1070 about The Bazaar.

Designed by Philippe Starck, the Los Angeles address is a unique property that will surely set new standards; not to mention that chef José Andrés is in charge of your gastronomical pleasures.
I would like to thank Sam for what his endeavors bring to the hospitality and culinary world.
