The Bazaar for Brunch- Short Review

snackdawg | Oct 5, 2009 01:12 PM

I've been wanting to go for some time and was getting a little nervous in light of some negative reviews. Parked behind the restaurant for free (yes!). Not too many people inside- which was perfect for us. The wait staff was attentive, pleasant and helpful. I was able to order in 3 rounds to avoid my dishes all coming out at the same time (although my waiter said that wouldn't be a problem anyway).

I had a hard time finding this anywhere online, but you can order anything off the regular menu plus whatever brunch items they have except for the foie cotton candy (there's no carts roaming around table side as far as I could tell although I think maybe the sangria is tableside?).

Bloody Mary with Celery Wasabi Cream- YES!! Ooohh.
Bagel and Lox Cones- very small (one bite) but really good. I could eat these all night.
Eggs Andy Garcia- highlight- it was absolutely great. The use of banana in the sauce was a surprise. WIll try to reproduce this dish at home.
Chorizo, Lomo platter- big dish and came with plenty of tomatoed toast.
Mussles in a can- subtle but extremely fresh.
Uni in a can- OMG! I've never had uni this good- I'd come back just for this.
Tomato and Watermelon Skewers- really good.
Philly Cheesesteak- small, but totally worth it.
Not Your Everyday Caprese- wow! An explosion of flavor.

Bill came to $140 for 2 with 1 drink each that lasted us throughout the entire meal. We were both suprisingly full and couldn't figure out why all the reviews about leaving hungry were all about. The Andy Garcia was pretty substantial- so maybe that was a great choice. Will definately make it back. Everything was compltely delicious and I was almost licking the plates.
