Last Friday, Forbes included The Bazaar by José Andrés as one of the Best New Restaurants in the Country. Located inside the SLS Hotel, that restaurant is famous for its over-the-top decor -- courtesy of designer Philippe Starck -- and extraordinary culinary experience. Now The Bazaar has taken its quirkiness to a new level with a water menu.
What this means is that you can hydrate yourself with a selection of limited edition, microbiologically pure water from a 500 million year old rock formation. Sound a bit elaborate? How about water drawn by monks from a still dating back to Roman times? This is no joke. The Bazaar takes its water menu very seriously, which is... well, a little bizarre. And considering the heritage of these seemingly magical elixirs, $10 a bottle seems like a bargain. Or not. What's next? A water sommelier? Don't laugh, because we asked and The Bazaar does not have a water sommelier. However, the hostess did ponder the notion, saying, "That's a really interesting idea..."
Until then, you can select your own water from The Bazaar's extensive menu. But with options like a Ferrari coachmaker-designed bottle to a famous "health tonic" dating back to 1888, how can you possibly choose?
