    Today, I visited Bazar Tapas restaurant, and right from the moment we arrived, we felt incredibly welcomed. The host and Alex, the bartender, were exceptionally kind to us. Alex recommended some drinks, and they were truly delightful. As for the food, we enjoyed the lamb chops, octopus, and tuna – all of which were exceptional. The lamb chops, in particular, were cooked to perfection and became my favorite. For our main course, we shared the seafood paella, which was also excellent. The dessert was also great chocolate mouse and the flan 🍮 The restaurant's ambiance was fantastic, with a live performance adding to the lively atmosphere. We even had the pleasure of being greeted by the chef and owner, who ensured that we had a more than enjoyable experience – it was truly amazing. We are already looking forward to returning for brunch!

    This was the official NYC restaurant/bar my friend stopped at on our trip. It was one of the few that was open that late on a Wednesday night. We actually came in about 30 minutes before the kitchen closed, so we rush-ordered whatever looked the most delicious. Since it was late at night and only a few people were in there, the restaurant was lit up with minimal lights, giving it a very cool, vibe-y feel. Because this was a tapas bar, all the dishes we ordered were shareables. The food came out fast and the waitress was nice and check-in on us a few times throughout as well. Roasted Beef Bone Marrow w/ Dijon Mustard & Garlic Bread (2/5): This one was a bit disappointing. I love bone marrow, and it's one of those dishes that I would immediately order if available on the menu, as I did here. Unfortunately, the was barely any marrow. The photo looks a bit deceiving because it was only a thin layer of marrow on the bone. The bread was also too hard for my preference. Usually, if there was more marrow to spread, it would pair well with a crispy thin bread slice. However, in this instance, there was barely any marrow and the bread was overly hard. Wild Mushroom Croquettes w/ Truffle Aioli (4/5): This was a yummy bite. I thought it was slightly greasy for my preference. The truffle aioli paired so well with the crispy croquette. My friend absolutely loved it as is. Baby Lamb Chops w/ Mint Mustard Coulis (5/5): Incredibly cooked. A slight crust and the meat was so flavorful and soft to the bite. Not much to say here. It was delicious. Seared Sesame-Crusted Tuna w/ Ponzu & Yellow Sriracha Aioli (5/5): The tuna crust was perfectly seared and paired so well with the aioli and ponzu. The tuna tasted fresh too. I love the tanginess of the sauces and the tartness from a squeeze of lemon on the fish.

    The paella has no flavor at all… we doubt that the chef didn't put any salt in it, it tastes like plain white rice. The seafood has no flavor either. The baby lamb chops are good though. We came here because we saw an array of advertisements for their paella on social media, and now we're regretting🤪🤪
