I rejoice when S. Irene Virbila loves the food I love! She gives The Bazaar by José Andrés a whopping four stars! A true rarity for Virbila and the L.A. Times! We both called the place "magical" and made Alice in Wonderland references! Whee!
Don't miss the above video from the L.A. Times. It's delightful!
If my earlier review didn't convince you, I hope Virbila's will. For those of you less familiar with her rating habits, it's a good day for a restaurant if it gets a star at all. Two stars pretty much guarantees your experience at the restaurant will be fantastic. I honestly can't even remember the last time Virbila awarded a full four stars. It might have been as long as four years ago.
When I told Mr. Monkey about the four-star rating, he said, "Let's go back!" Seriously, this is a place you must visit.
