    One of the most unique and delicious meals i've ever had. We sat at the Chefs table so we enjoyed a culinary lesson watching the amazing chefs work on their artistic dishes. Such a friendly staff! A++

    The Fois Gras Floating Island: a really good hot mushroom soup (with a deliciously fatty hint of goose liver) topped with cold corn espuma (that’s fancy molecular gastronomy talk for foam, FYI). Read more

    More then just a restaurant, a culinary experience. Great vibes, great service, incredible food, would definetly recommend the beef tartare, the foie gras cotton candy and the tuna ceviche.

    This was one of the top memorable meals of my life. You can't do the omakase w/ more than 2 people, but they chose for us & took amazing care of us. We even met the chefs & got a tour of the kitchen.

    The caprese salad and the philly cheesestakes are a must! No doubt! The mushroom risotto with truffles is also amazing! In drinks: The nitrogen cipirinha! And desserts; "Pan con chocolate" is amazing!

    Don't miss the Philly "Cheesesteak" or the old & new olives"; best olives I've EVER had. Can't go wrong with anything you order. Stay for dessert too; it's Willy Wonka meets Alice in Wonderland.

    My favorite was the Ahi ceviche wrapped with avocado! Get more seafood tapas than meaty tapas! + funky display - chicken croquette in a plastic shoe.

    Ask the bartenders for something off the menu.I prefer the Bella Fresca or Penecilin- sounds weird but it's a lemony delight! As far as food goes, the Caprese is to die for and very unusual.

    We had the Capresé salad, Asparagus rice, Philly cheesesteak sandwich, Chicken croquettes and Tuna Avocado and they were absolutely delicious. If you were 2 people, order 7 to 8 dishes.

    The decor is all Alice in Wonderland on LSD, but the bunuelos de bacalao are godly, as is the ceviche avocado roll. Plus: don't miss the olives, which come from a recipe from El Bulli.

    MUST go to place for a foodie in LA. Jose Andres (the chef) was featured on 60 Minutes last year; it is pricy though. Philly Cheesesteak & the beet salad are must haves.

    The carts aren't limited to booze; they also serve caviar cones from carts, and back before foie gras became a crime, they also used to do cotton candy foie gras, spinning sugar while turning heads. Read more

    The menu is divided into two sections, Blanca for traditional tapas, Roja for modern ones. Our advice is to try a few from Blanca then order as many as you can eat (and afford) from Roja.

    Molecular gastronomy is just starting to catch on, but Jose Andres is one of the masters. Look for his unique tastes on traditional dishes (his spin on a caprese salad is a perennial favorite).
