Bazaar Brunch

A weird chance of fate had us sitting next to Matthew and Christine at Ludobites.

A number of emails later and we arranged to meet at Bazaar for brunch. My husband had to work, but he generously donated a Dagueneau Silex, one of our favorites, for the occasion.

Meeting and talking with Matthew and Christine was a real treat. However, I think I talked way too much and I do apologize to them for that. I ended up doing the ordering and decided to focus on those dishes that I knew were superior and more brunch oriented.

sweet potato - med

A gift from the kitchen. Sweet Potato Chips with a dipping sauce of yogurt, tamarind, star anise – absolutely addictive

 

bloody mary

A perfect Bloody Mary with celery-wasabi foam on top

 

cones- med

Bagel and Lox Cone – actually a salmon cone with creme fraiche and salmon eggs. This was much better than the caviar cone served at dinner.

 

eggs benedict -med

Eggs Benedict “New Way” with Serrano Ham

Savory Spanish Torrijas, Iberico Ham, egg 63, Idiazabal Cheese – I think this was Christine’s favorite.

12 Tiny Eggs Sunny Side Up – Huevos a la Cubana “Andy Garcia” – I love this dish.

philly

“Philly Cheescake” – I really could have eaten 3 more of these – delicious.

 

foie

Foie Gras, Quince, Brioche – the quince with the foie was perfect

 

Ryan

Our wonderful server, Ryan.

We were under a time constraint and probably could have ordered a lot more, but it was a wonderful time and Matthew and Christine are an exceptional couple and wonderful company.

    lovely post! yes, almost every item that we had was exemplary. Thank you for bringing the Dagueneau Silex, it was a superb wine. I don’t envision the next time I will be able to try another Dagueneau considering their rarity.

    you are some of the best company we’ve ever had at a meal, can’t wait for the next one!

    Matthew, the feeling is mutual.

    Anyone is lucky to have you as company at a meal, Liz. I’d let you order for me anywhere!

    Had brunch there with my Mom last Saturday and loved it. Best bloody mary I’d ever had. Loved the bagel & lox cone, And the guacamole wrapped in these darling little parcels was to die for ! Flan was good at dessert too 🙂

    Lizzie,

    Sorry to comment on an old post but last night I made caprihinas with lime air and each time we drank it, the air/foam would move away so all you’d get is the cocktail but not the air. Did you have this problem with the Bazaar cocktails?

    At least with the Bloody Mary, the foam held up perfectly.
