The Bazaar by José Andrés

Food critics and peripatetic gastronauts alike are raving about this multi-concept Philippe Starck–designed restaurant from the Spanish-born, D.C.-based José Andrés. At the avant-garde Blanca, Andrés channels his mentor, Ferran Adrià, with spherified olives and foie gras cotton candy, while the vampy, red-and-black Rojo serves perfectly executed Iberian tapas. Whichever you choose, end with an outré bonbon from the Patisserie.

From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List

Chef Racha Bassoul’s latest venture is a stripped-down version of her acclaimed <strong>Anise</strong>. Here, she gives her unique Nouveau Levantine cuisine the broad appeal of a bistro and places the emphasis on homestyle but unmistakably modern Middle Eastern dishes: delicious grilled meats and seafood alongside fragrant home-baked breads and flatbreads.

We loved: Seven-spice lamb samosas with roasted red pepper and pine-nut tapenade; veal cheeks braised in red wine with garlic-scented yogurt and sautéed chickpeas.
