Everyone knows New York’s Bagatelle as the ultimate brunch spot. Actually, it’s more than just a brunch spot. It’s gold mine for party central. It’s a lifestyle. Big time finance guys droppin’ $25k on bottles, overly dressed brunch babes dancing on tables on a Sunday as if work the next day didn’t exist, and a staff that even Wilhemania wishes were in their bookings.
Yeah sure Bagatelle is hip and happening from 11am-3 pm but did you know they even serve dinner? It’s a revolution. Once you’ve had your 2 pm mimosa, it’s time to head back in a few hours for a glass of wine and do it all over again (except a lot more composed minus dancing on the tables with your heel on the verge of breaking off).
Its delectable new menu offers a wide array of fresh and vibrant choices from salads de tomatoes au forage de chevre (heirloom tomatoes, goat cheese, kimchi, lime vinaigrette) to halibut céviché, micro cilantro with lime and frisée salad alongside leche de tigre to beef tenderloin carpaccio, you truly can’t go wrong with any of those choices.
Undoubtedly its signature dishes like gnocchi Truffés à la Parisienne de Nicolas (homemade choux pastry gnocchi truffle sauce & parmesan) and poulet rôti entier à la truffe (whole truffled roasted chicken, baby potatoes) are here to stay and are offered on the menu as well. Have no fear, there classics are here! You haven’t fully experienced the Spring dinner menu until you’ve gotten a load of the Tomahawk, and I mean LOAD (min 35 oz) of the 35 oz. certified Angus Beef Tomahawk steak plus country potatoes "en persillade.” Your tastebuds will gratify you right then and there, just saying.
Oh and let’s not forget about that $60 sundae once you’ve already stuffed your face with steak, gnocchi, and potatoes. Filled with brownie bites, chunky cookies, and chocolate covered pretzels, fluffy marshmallows, heaps of vanilla scoops slathered in chocolate, caramel sauces and whipped cream, this is the all-time show-stopping MVP of Bagatelle. You’re going to have to un-notch your belt for that one indeed. You know what? Just take of the belt while you’re at it. You’ve already pranced on the tables from every angle of the restaurant at this point anyway. Just keep going.
Above all, it’s about time to set reservations at this trendy shindig of a restaurant. Ten years strong and running, located in the heart of the Meatpacking District, Bagatelle’s flagship location has grown to become an icon in the restaurant industry with its impeccable service and exquisite seasonal cuisine. Juxtaposed with its opulent space and edgy graffiti art, this prime location was initially designated to reinvent the neighborhood and sprinkle that European charm back into the infamous borough.
