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!!
