But since black is beautiful, last week the restaurant started offering the black truffle experience. Throughout the 18-course prix-fixe menu, priced at $250 with wine pairings available, diners can discover the culinary creativity and talents of José Andrés, R & D chef Aitor Zabala, chef de cuisine Holly Jivin, and pastry chef Kriss Harvey.
Last night I headed to The Bazaar by José Andrés at SLS Hotel at Beverly Hills to see what they were planning for the big night: be prepared for a Spanish Masquerade Ball. For $250, you will have unlimited access to the tapas and desserts that make Andrés’ cuisine so different, as well as drinks. Quite a deal for this restaurant!
The title of Roger Vadim’s 1956 film, “…And God Created Woman” starring Brigitte Bardot, comes to mind as we propose that José Andrés created — or at least recreated — desserts at The Bazaar at SLS Hotel at Beverly Hills.
I had dinner there a few weeks ago. At the end I was forced by general manager Shannon Ferguson to try the new desserts — I say “forced” because chef de cuisine Joshua Whigham had already sent enough dishes to satisfy my appetite.
