José Andrés' DC empire continues with The Bazaar, a Spanish restaurant located in the Waldorf Hotel at the Old Post Office with lush cathedral arches and grand crystal chandeliers. There are cherry blossom trees in full bloom, indoors. It’s dramatic and fantastical—which is exactly the vibe at The Bazaar, where drinks are displayed in clouds of dry ice to guests wearing dark wash jeans and $30,000 watches. On the menu are quirky and creative tapas like cotton candy foie gras. But, as is the flaw with some of Andrés’ restaurants, the menu is inconsistent. Some entrees are excellent, like the philly cheesesteak, a deconstructed take on an old-school classic, and some fall flat, like the dragon fruit ceviche served with a peach-ring fruity foam that just does not work.
