Bazaar Brunch – West Hollywood

It is with great sadness that I have to report that Bazaar will no longer be serving brunch on Saturday and Sunday after Feb 13. I love Bazaar’s brunch – it is not a scene and the food is delicious.

The menu – very extensive, even at brunch. Unfortunately the egg dishes are not on the dinner menu.

The bar area – also prep is done in this area as well.

Nicole – our cute server who also has a French Bull dog, Camilla, who seems to be as spoiled as our 3 dogs.

We tend to order the same things again and again so many of the descriptions are repeats as the dishes themselves.

Bloody Mary – “Freshly-made tomato juice, celery-wasabi foam” – The base is a mix of tomato juice, vodka, Worcestershire, lime juice, salt and pepper. It is topped with celery-wasabi foam that is created by loading wasabi-infused lime juice and celery puree into a CO2 canister. Nicole suggested that we choose Ketel One Vodka as it is the purest. We did as we were told.

Bagel and Lox Cone” –  a cone made out of brik filled with salmon eggs, crème fraîche and topped with a sprig of dill – a one bite of deliciousness.

Fresh Kumamoto oysters, lemon, black pepper – presented in a tin. The tin is just for show as the oysters were freshly shucked.

BYO Chamapgne

Jamon Iberico de bellota Fermin – acorn-fed, free-range Iberico ham – Absolutely had to have this again and just as delicious as the first time. The jamon is served with Catalan style toasted bread with tomato; eat the jamon and bread with tomato separately. The bread with tomato was perfect as well as the jamon.

12 Tiny Eggs Sunny side up – Huevos a la Cubana “Andy Garcia” – a crispy rice cake was topped with 12 fried quail eggs, crispy shavings of Jamon Serrano, dabs of an intense, spicy tomato puree, crispy bacon and topped with some diced chives. I love this dish, I love this dish, I love this dish.

Croquetas de pollo- chicken and bechamel fritters – perfect

Inside of the croquetas.

BYO White Wine

Chef Yancy Windsperger – this goes into the record books as the world of wine and food is a very small one. Yancy worked at Cotes Basque in New York, then Bayona in New Orleans, a restaurant in Miami and finally found his way to Los Angeles. Well, Ron and Regina Keever co-owners of Bayona witth Susan Spicer are two of our closest friends!

Foie Gras, Quince, Brioche Buns – perfect as always

“Not your everyday Caprese – cherry tomatoes, liquid mozzarella” – this was a gift from Yancy – it was essential that you ate every element together – air-bread, pesto, liquid mozzarella, Jimenez reduction, olive oil, tomato impregnated baby basil – another winner

Butifarra Senator Moynihan – Catalan pork sausage, white beans, mushrooms – this time my husband remembered to take the picture.

I will greatly miss the brunch at Bazaar, but there is always dinner and just maybe they will put Huevos a la Cubana “Andy Garcia” on the dinner menu.

    After reading your original post on Bazaar Brunch, we just went today and thought it was excellent. Too bad they won’t be offering it anymore. The Andy Garcia Eggs were amazing.

    Such a shame! Guess the economy is affecting a lot of restaurants. Thanks for posting on this!

    Great posting Lizziee, not sure I’d find a brunch like that anywhere in London, England!

    How did you like the BYO Champagne? I have found that in London and liked it immensely. Do you source all your own wines from the LA region?

    FYI – Spoke to our server Mario when we at at Bazaar Saturday (2/13) and he said brunch was moving to Tres, inside the SLS. I know, not the same staff…but maybe a similar menu.

    Oh, and the Andy Garcia dish is still on the ALL DAY room service menu…I’m going to try and order it this morning. Wish me luck.
