The Bazaar at the SLS Hotel on South Beach comes to us thanks to the genius of James Beard Award-winning restaurateur, cookbook author, and Made in Spain TV star José Andrés. The Bazaar’s menu offers adventurous takes on the flavors of the world: Spain, Singapore, and Japan, as well as Miami’s unique Latin American connection. Thus we get exciting plates like Japanese tacos: perfectly grilled eel, shiso, and wasabi, wrapped in slivered cucumber and topped with flakes of crisp chicharrones. More traditional Spanish tapas, including hams, cheeses, and croquetas, are also available. Can’t decide? Indulge in the $65-per-person “Clasicos” menu and treat yourself to a five-course menu of the chef’s favorites. New Normal: Indoor tables are marked for social distancing with whimsical stuffed monkeys. Alternatively, opt for an outdoor table courtesy of Bar Centro, another Andrés/SLS undertaking.
