The Bazaar … deconstruct your key lime pie in Spanish style

When I visited: May 2015

Location: Miami, in the SLS hotel

Team: Jose Andres (Head Chef), Rachel Macalisang (Head Sommelier)

Rating in the Michelin Guide: Not rated

Dining Owl Hoot rating: 4/5

What to wear: Men – jeans or nice trousers and a shirt; women – jeans and a smart top or a smart dress

Ambience: Pretty, small, smart/casual

Course of the meal: Deconstructed key lime pie

If I could change one thing: Longer gap between courses


I find that Spanish food is one of the best types for sharing and for feeling a bit ‘different’ even if the food is simple on the surface. The Bazaar makes a great effort to pour innovation into its menu, with its ‘not just a Caprese salad’ and, for dessert, its deconstructed key lime pie particular highlights. I would recommend going either on a date or with a group of friends and selecting a couple of things from each section of the menu. If I were to make any criticism, it would be that they actually served us way too quickly … I like a little pause between courses, especially when there are a lot of them and they’re filling, to digest. However, you should definitely make a stop here if you’re going to Miami (welcome to Miami!).
