Eleven Madison Park updated their menu in late January, which is fairly recent. I made a reservation when I got the opportunity, and I was really excited to see what new dishes and presentations they came up with—I was also curious to see what they got rid of. Devastatingly, they got rid of my beloved egg cream. Sad times. However, they added some great new dishes, like the beef pastrami course!

2 Flavor Choice

To start the meal, we had to open a small envelope containing two tickets. We were supposed to choose the flavor that we considered the most intriguing or liked the most by taking out the symbol. Later on in the meal, we found the flavors we chose represented in various ways! I chose maple, while Steve chose fennel.

My friend’s birthday recently passed, and I wanted to celebrate with her by getting lunch at Per Se. All four of us really like Per Se, so we were very excited about having the opportunity to go. We made our reservation a few weeks in advanced and waited in eager anticipation for the upcoming foodfest!

The meal was wonderful as always. The “Oysters and Pearls” were fantastic (but this isn’t really new), the poularde/hen was wonderful, and the slow-roasted carrots were unusually soft and flavorful. The desserts were also better than I remember.

Also, my friend Michelle is going to be adding her own comments for this one. They’re the best hahaha. We have got to have her commenting more often…

The Bazaar is one of our favorite restaurants in LA, and I try to visit occasionally when I’m in town. I’m always curious to see what new dishes appear on the menu, but we always make sure to order a few of our old favorites. We were pleased to learn that they now have some daily specials. We ordered a few (the “Secreto”, tomahawk steak, and black truffle tortilla de patatas) and also ordered some of our old favorites (and a few new things).

The food here is generally consistently good, and it’s kind of amazing that they can produce such a wide variety of delicious dishes. If you haven’t been here, you should definitely check it out!
