Tres by José Andrés can be found located inside the SLS Hotel in Beverley Hills. For those of you who are unaware, José Andrés is a Spanish born American chef who has a wealth of culinary experience. Tres, is José Andrés’ sister restaurant to The Bazaar, serving up traditional Spanish tapas-style cuisine.

Upon arrival, we entered the restaurant via the hotel lobby, and were delighted to find the interior cosy, sophisticated, and perfectly lavish. Bookshelves full of books, warm fireplaces and beautifully comfortable furnishings make this space what it is - it’s hard not to relax here. We were instantly comforted by the warm atmosphere, and were excited by what was to come during the evening.

We opted to try a couple of cocktails from the list, as aperitifs. First up, we sampled a José’s Gimlet, which was a truly refreshing blend of gin and lime. Secondly, we opted to try the Pisco Sour, which included a blend of pisco, fresh lemon and lime juices, along with egg whites and bitters. The cocktails were superb. We were very impressed by the competence of the bar staff at Tres by José Andrés; they really have mastered mixology.

Following our cocktails, we sat down for dinner. We chose a bottle of the 2007 Reserva, Beronia, Temperanillo Rioja to accompany our meal, and went about making our menu choices.

“The chefs at Tres by José Andrés are clearly very skilled in the art of Spanish cuisine.”

We decided to opt for a selection of tapas dishes to share. We thoroughly enjoy the experience of sociable dining, so this style of cuisine was right up our street.

Firstly, we chose the patatas bravas chips in a brava sauce, with aioli. These were superb, the brava sauce cut through the fried potatoes perfectly - we were very impressed with the depth of flavour.

Secondly, we went for the steamed vegetable basket, which included the chef’s selection of market fresh vegetables with soy, olive oil and kalamata dust. This was a delicious way of getting a vegetable hit, and the vegetables were cooked to perfection.

Next up were the croquetas de pollo - divine fritters of chicken and béchamel. These were one of our favourite dishes of the evening, although, not a lot could top the next dish - shrimp garbardina. Beutiful tempura shrimp served with a homemade tartare sauce.

We also enjoyed the jumbo lump crab cakes with coleslaw salad, as well as the very interesting, yet delicious, vermicelli mac and cheese, which is baked and served with parmesan cheese and sautéed wild mushrooms.

We were very impressed with the tapas dishes, which offered a great variety of flavours and textures. The chefs at Tres by José Andrés are clearly very skilled in the art of Spanish cuisine.

We decided to share dessert - a selection of sorbets, including tangerine, pineapple and passion fruit. Again, these were simply delicious.

We would certainly recommend Tres by José Andrés to anyone who finds themselves in Beverley Hills and enjoys a sociable meal in lavish surroundings.
