é by José Andrés. Truly one of the most enjoyable meals I’ve ever experienced.
There are just 8 seats inside this restaurant inside the Jaleo restaurant in the Cosmopolitan Hotel. We dined with two other couples, and one solo diner (who turned out to be the Chef in charge of Jose Andres’ restaurants in Washington, D.C.)
This is a show, inside a room that’s supposed to represent the inside of the mind of José Andrés.
We loved the edible sangria, which was presented in a box and tasted a little bit like Dippin’ Dots (the ice cream of the future!) This was Spain’s street food prepared in an incredibly modern way. Lots of foams and interesting flavors working. Seriously, 18 out of 19 courses were epic. I didn’t like the lobster with citrus & jasmine because it tasted of too much jasmine- almost soapy.
The beet sandwich was amazing, the foie gras and lamb… the lamb may have been the best tasting lamb I’ve ever enjoyed. You can see each course by looking at the gallery below,
If you google e, you’ll see many articles saying that you have to reserve months in advance, but we emailed firstname.lastname@example.org the week before our arrival, and we got in. It cost $195 for the tasting menu, and was totally worth it. The wine pairing was also excellent, and my wife and I split it so we wouldn’t be rolling out of there drunk.
Our expectations were high for é by José Andrés, and they were exceeded. Awesome experience, with some incredible dishes.
