Profile

This venue is closed.

Chef Rick Laakkonen, veteran of upscale downtown brand names like Tao and Buddha Bar, plays to the bistro crowd at Bazar with standard French flavors: steak frites, moules frites, a series of savory crepes – but he also embraces North African tastes with dishes like a chicken briwatt, its flaky crust melting into a feta-and-mushroom paste. The seafood is a particular high point, with an agreeably mild grilled octopus sauced in a garlicky clam ragout, or a rich red snapper surrounded by capers and buttered couscous in a light, sweet sauce accented by sharp, oil-cured black olives. Of course, there’s a burger, sent out with thick-cut “pommes pont neuf” and topped with a fried egg and house-made ketchup. A set of elaborate desserts – mille-feuille, a berry-decked vacherin, crepes with apricot and white vermouth crème anglaise – rounds out the menu.
