My husband and I enjoyed a great evening at Bazaar during DineLA week. It was just a terrific experience on all levels. The small plates were uniformly delicious and imaginative, with impeccable preparation-- both the traditional plates and the molecular gastronomy plates. We tried 10 different items and they were all hits: I don't think I could pick out a favorite. The two delicious, but less blissful, items were the guacamole and the chicken croquettes: both were perfect, but less unusual in flavor than the other items we chose. We thought the portions were generous and left quite full. I looked at the regular menu and did not find it overpriced.
As others have mentioned, the ambiance is unique and wonderful. The lighting-- the space--there is something very special in the design that creates a relaxed, lively and celebratory ambiance, very festive. It isn't overly loud, or overlit, and the tables aren't crowded together. Despite it's very modern vibe, it has an atmosphere that recalls...maybe a Parisian brasserie from the turn of the (last) century. Like in a painting of a lively restaurant scene by Renoir or Manet, when you wish you could be there. Bazaar is a great place for a celebration, or for a dinner for two. I can't wait to come back.
