é vs. Bazaar's Saam
I'm a NYCer planning on visiting LA and Vegas in the summer on the same west coast trip. Has anyone been to both restaurants and can comment on comparing the food/experiences? I may possibly try to get reservations to both.
I thought food at e tasted better, and a big difference was the intimacy of the meal. Saam is a 34 person dining room where the food is brought out from the kitchen. e is a 8 person counter where you see the food being prepared, which invites a lot of dialogue about the food.
If you're a big molecular/Andres fan, you might as well go to both. If you have to pick one, I'd definitely go with e.
Yea, I'm more interested in going to é. I've been to Vegas a few times so I've already tried out some of their other great restaurants. Never been to LA so maybe I skip it and try something else if I get into é. I've never been to a true molecular or Andres restaurant, but hitting up Alinea in a couple of weeks so we'll see. Ha.
