We can tell you that our favorite items on the extensive tapas menu included the Conch Fritters and Foie Gras toasts that fall under the 'Some Little Sandwiches' section.
Bar Centro, the breezy backyard patio, serves a smaller variation on The Bazaar menu, including the Embutidos Platter, a yummy grazing plate of Serrano ham, chorizo, lomo Iberico, Manchego, Garrotxa and Catalan-style toasted bread with tomatoes. A great dish to share with a friend over drinks.
Speaking of which, we fell in love with the Passion Fruit Up (rum, passion fruit, ginger-laurel syrup topped with passion fruit foam)--although at $16, we're not sure we'd sling back too many in one night.
Bar Centro also does punch bowls of Mojito, Margarita and Agave con Leche for $70 apiece. Good old-fashioned beer drinkers will be pleased to know that the humble Miller Lite is reasonably priced at $6.
Jose Andres is intent on making the gin and tonic the new must-have drink in South Beach. (On the menu, it's called the Ultimate Gin & Tonic.) We're not yet convinced this will work, but one's thing for sure: we're damn happy to have Andres--or his master menu-planning at the very least--in town.
Next on our agenda: returning to SLS to sample his breakfast menu.
