Bazaar Valet!!!

I finally made it to Bazaar last Friday night ...the decor was standard Starck - interesting at first, and then got quickly irritating - in particular the uncomfortable chairs in the dining room and silly desert area. Don't even get me started on the urinals with the three sided mirrors :)

Food was uneven...started great, and went downhill. When the best dish was the ham sampler, which you could replicate by going to the Beverly Hills Cheese Store or similar places, it doesn't say that much about the food. Also, sharing and dividing every plate (over 16 dishes for three of us) gets really tiresome by the end.

All in all, about what I expected.

What I didn't expect, though, was an obscene $14 valet charge (no, they don't validate). Virtually every other restaurant on "Restaurant Row" is in the $5-6 range, I think. It's not as if we're going to park at the SLS and walk somewhere else - there is nowhere else to go!

Rant over.
