Fodor's Review

Celebrity Spanish chef José Andrés conquers L.A. with a multifaceted concept that includes two dining rooms (one classic, one modern), a cocktail bar stocked with liquid nitrogen, and a flashy pâtisserie. Half of the menu is dedicated to traditional Spanish tapas: bacalao (salt cod) fritters with honey aïoli, creamy chicken croquetas, and plates of chorizo or prized jamón Ibérico. The other half involves some wild inventions of molecular gastronomy, including "liquid" olives (created through a technique called spherification), and an ethereal version of the traditional tortilla Española in which an egg is cooked slowly at 63 degrees, just short of coagulation. A splendid list of Spanish wines is offered. For dessert, the patisserie offers playful items like beet meringue with pistachios and chocolate lollipops.

The Bazaar by José Andrés Review

This is a trippy, fun place with yummy food in small portions that you share -- kind of a tapas gone wild! Must have a dessert -- you move from the main restaurant past the bar to the dessert room. Yes, a dessert room. Biggest downside is the parking. Do NOT park at the hotel if you can help it -- find a spot on the street (check the signs, though!) -- they don't validate, and the cost is beyond steep.
