I've been to the Bazaar here in Los Angeles and the place is actually pretty darn good. So when I heard that there was a Bazaar Meat in Las Vegas, I knew I had to try it.
Bazaar Meat by Jose Andres is located in the SLS Hotel conjoining a bar/nightclub, which I thought was pretty weird. Upon entering, you are greeted by the hostess and a pretty large bar behind them where you can order from their bar menu or their regular menu. There is an open kitchen with a fairly large dining area with "interesting" decor. A display of meats both fresh and curing are displayed at the restaurant. We ended up getting the prix fixe menu for $100 so we can try a bit of everything...
|COURSE TWO: FERRAN ADRIA OLIVES, MODERN AND TRADITIONAL. Gordal Olives Stuffed with Piquillo Pepper and Anchovy. This was a good olive dish. I thought it was pretty simple, so nothing too special about it.
|COURSE THREE: BAGEL AND LOX CONE: Dill Cream Cheese, Salmon Roe. This was probably my least favorite dish out of all the courses. Don't get me wrong, it was tasty but it was a little too fishy for my liking. The cone itself was deliciously crunchy.
|COURSE FOUR: CROQUETAS DE POLLO: Chicken-Bechamel Fritters. This was one of my favorites. I loved the exterior being super crispy. Inside, it was warm creamy goodness that was perfectly balanced. And who doesn't love the presentation in a glass shoe?

|COURSE EIGHT: GRILLED ASPARAGUS: Romesco Sauce. I loved the asparagus. It was nice and tender with a slight crisp to them. The romesco sauce was just ok for me. I prefer if it had more of a tomato sauce to it.
Notable Dishes: Chateaubriand Tenderloin and Robouchon Potatoes
