We are seeing more and more ‘outpost’ restaurants – where a big name chef attaches his name to a local property.  It then becomes a Where’s Waldo campaign to figure out where the chef actually is, and how much involvement he actually has, with that particular monikered restaurant.

Having been to the Jose Andres outpost in Las Vegas, we were very unsure which version of the Chef would be present on South  Beach, Miami; after all, Miami feels a bit closer to Vegas then Barcelona.

We are quite happy to report that our meal, drinks and service were at an all-time high.  In short, the dinner was fantastic!

Kudos to Chef Vargas for the day-to-day work and keeping Bazaar at the top end of  Miami dining.  Each dish was coordinated perfectly – from the stylish presentation to the exquisite  finish.  We really had a lovely meal – topped off with an extra Caipirinha (Made with Liquid Nitrogen table-side of course!!

If you find yourself in Miami – Bazaar by Jose Andres is heartily recommended 🙂

Note that Bazaar has an all-day menu and is a great place to also pop into for a quick lunch.  Standouts include the Gazpacho Patricia (tomatoes, cucumbers, crouton, sherry vinegar), the Pan con tomato (perfect bread flown in daily from Spain) and the afternoon drink of choice .. Passion Fruit Up (Dark  rum , passion fruit and ginger – laurel syrup , topped with passion fruit espuma)
