A passion for food + fashion

4 Starry Night

Speaking of hype, everyone has been talking about Virbila’s four-star review of The Bazaar, José Andrés’ new place inside the SLS Hotel. Our friend Amy is in town from Las Vegas, so we thought we should go check it out. I had been for lunch when it first opened, but was dying to go back since the recent press. If you haven’t been yet, the SLS Hotel is about as glitzy as it gets even by Vegas standards, and looking around at the impossibly good-looking clientele it seems unlikely that good food is being served here, let alone being eaten. But it is! Instead of me going on and on and on and on about how ridiculously amazing and theatrical it all is (and believe me, it is), I’m going to let the photos speak for themselves.Oh, and I’ll post later in the week on dessert. See if you can spot the weird molecular science in the below photos. Hint: we didn’t eat any mozzarella or olives last night but we tasted both…
