Upon walking into Bagatelle, you are enveloped by a bright and chic ambiance, from the cream-colored bar adorned with colorful flowers, to the tan banquettes with crisp white linens.

Art courtesy of the Opera Gallery lets you know that Bagatelle is even more than meets the eye. There’s nod to excess throughout, which is most famously brought to you by Bagatelle’s brunch.

Bagatelle’s unparalleled weekend brunch has paved the way for the week’s most entertaining meal, transforming mid-day brunch into an all blow out social event.

Guests can sip champagne and dance with friends, all the while sampling French classics like Croque Monsieur, or break with tradition and try a unique twist like Matcha French Toast with Sake-infused White Chocolate Mousse.

If lunch or dinner is more your speed, Bagatelle has plenty of options from land and sea to choose from. The Organic Grass-Fed Truffle Chicken is one of their signature dishes, whole-roasted and fragrant, not to mention the perfect item to share.

If you’re looking for a lighter bite, there’s a wide selection of oysters, crudo, and tartare, as well as charcuterie. And for those who bring their appetites, there’s the Black Angus Aged Porterhouse for two that comes with three sides.

We suggest the Pommes Aligot, a French classic that combines cheese and potatoes into a dish that is velvety and rich.

There’s nothing like a smooth cocktail to wash down a decadent French meal, which is why Bagatelle takes pride in their specialty drinks.

Let the bubbles flow with their signature Rich & Famous brunch cocktail, made with Belvedere Vodka, lime juice, muddled apples, and cucumbers, topped with Veuve Cliquot Rich champagne.

This cocktail matches the high-energy brunch at Bagatelle, but there’s nothing stopping you from having a simple glass of Sauternes.
