Have you ever wanted to sip rosé on a patio in Saint-Tropez or drink copious amounts of champagne with friends in the French Riviera? Well you can, sort of. Nestled away in the uber-chic area of the Meatpacking District sits the infamous Bagatelle.
While not new to the neighborhood, since its reopening in 2012, the French bistro, which seats 95 people, has been making quite a name for itself. Breathtaking is the perfect way to describe the decorative moldings, crystal chandeliers, interesting artwork and striking white décor. Bagatelle NY has quite a reputation for its extravagant brunches, but they want you to know that they own lunch, as well.
The new summer prix fixe lunch menu at Bagatelle is one not to be missed. For just $29, you are able to indulge in an appetizer, a main course and dessert. Starters include halibut ceviche with micro cilantro and gnocchi truffes à la Parisienne de Nicolas—homemade gnocchi with black truffle pesto filling and truffle sauce. The main dishes will have your mouth watering, too. In the mood for a burger? Try Bagatelle’s twist — the Salmon Burger. It’s served with tomato confit and tartar sauce on a wheat bun. I always love a good pasta dish for lunch and the tomato linguine with a hearty meatball was no exception, however, I suggest you try to save room for dessert. The prix fixe menu offers a sorbet, Choux Choux Caramel and a plate of delectable seasonal fruit. And while it may be lunch, don’t forget about Bagatelle’s impressive champagne and wine list. A glass of bubbly complements any meal!
If you’ve visited Bagatelle for brunch or dinner, then you know you’re in for a treat. Bagatelle NY opens at 11:30 for lunch, Monday – Friday.
