Trés by José Andrés Restaurant Review

:
About the restaurant: You could spend all day at Trés in the SLS Hotel Beverly Hills --- and we mean that both figuratively and literally since the restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner and weekend brunch. It's the first thing you see upon entering the hotel, even before the front desk. Like its more upscale sibling The Bazaar by José Andrés, Trés was designed by Philippe Starck in a unique style that blends warmth, sophistication and whimsy. The many different light fixtures in particular always catch our eye. A variety of seating options are available as well, from tall, white marble-topped tables to cozy sofas and armchairs, some facing fireplaces.

About breakfast: Chef José Andrés hails from Spain, so naturally the menus draw some inspiration from his home country. At breakfast, you'll find tortilla Española (a traditional potato and onion omelet) served with a side of 'pa amb tomaquet' (toasted rustic bread with fresh tomatoes). Those looking for a classic American breakfast won’t be disappointed, but we suggest trying one of Andrés' imaginative creations, such as the huevos a la Cubana "Andy Garcia," composed of a dozen quail eggs sunny side up with rice, tomato sauce, bacon and banana purée.

Likes: American paddlefish caviar à gogo at brunch. Décor.
Dislikes: Some pastries look tastier than they actually are.

About lunch & dinner: The lunch and dinner menus share many of the same dishes, including starters (chicken croquetas, seared scallops), soups (a California version of the very Spanish gazpacho), salads and entrées. Vegetarians should hone in on the couscous with cauliflower, romanesco, pine nuts and harissa broth. As to be expected the mid-day entrée offerings aren't as extensive as those offered in the evening, but that's offset by the addition of several sandwiches, like jamon Serrano, tomato and burrata and a grown-up version of grilled cheese with mozzarella, sharp cheddar and truffle dubbed the "Beverly Hills Bikini." For dessert, there are fashionable SLS cookies, though we tend to find them not that creative in general. We prefer the coconut tapioca or traditional Spanish flan. Make selections from the globe-trotting wine list or choose from the craft cocktails.

About tea & brunch: Trés puts its own spin on afternoon tea ($45) with "savory little snacks," one of the multiple SLS déclinaisons, and "secretly lusted sweets." However, if you really want to indulge, visit for the weekend brunch buffet ($65 per adult, $30 per child, plus extra charge for a welcome cocktail or additional entrée). The American paddlefish caviar is a nice surprise. We paired it with salmon roe and smoked salmon after a few fresh oysters and snow crab claws. Don't miss the meat carving displays before moving on to the cheese and charcuterie. The pan con tomate from The Bazaar next door is a must-have. You might end up spending time in front of the pastries buffet, as there are so many choices and there is no way you can have one of each. On the lighter side, there are fresh fruits, Greek yogurt parfait, fresh-squeezed juices and aguas frescas.
