The Bazaar from Dezeen
We're getting a few more breadcrumbs about the forthcoming SLS Beverly Hills, SBE's reconfiguration of the Le Meredien hotel on La Cienega, just one more notch in the Sam Nazarian-world-takeover belt. As previously noted, José Andrés will be overseeing food and bev for the entire hotel, and the dining options are a-plenty: In addition to the Bazaar, "the hotel’s public lobby reinvented as a fête extraordinaire with a heady array of pioneering culinary and lounge concepts," menus will be available in a private guest lobby, three private dining rooms, and a rooftop pool deck with cabanas. We don't have menu specifics yet, but Andrés has a long list of accolades for his avant-garde Spanish cuisine at his restaurants (Jaleo, Oyamel, Zaytinya, Café Atlantico, minibar) in Washington D.C. As with other SBE projects, Philippe Starck is doing all design. Late summer, early fall opening.
