On a rainy evening earlier this fall, I attended a lovely and intimate blogger tasting featuring Bagatelle‘s dinner menu. We warmed up with a few bottles of wine, lots of laughter and some amazing French and Mediterranean inspired cuisine prepared by chef Sébastien Chamaret.
I know what you are thinking – is this the same Bagatelle with the awesome weekend party brunch? Yes, yes it is. However, Bagatelle at dinner time offers a completely different experience poised with well suited men and high-heeled women enjoying an elegant meal after a long day at work. so sophisticated.
With its charming ambiance, decadent menu and prime location, Bagatelle is perfect for a holiday dinner in the city! If you are celebrating Christmas in NYC, take a look at Bagatelle’s menu!
Here are the blogger night dishes we enjoyed! In complete honesty – I was having a little too much fun to snap a photo of everything, but here are some highlights. You might even recognize the gnocchi from our Foodie Friday column!
