Expert review of Bistrot Bagatelle
Bistrot Bagatelle doesn't claim to be the best French restaurant in the city. While it won't win any culinary awards - although the food is perfectly fine - it's noteworthy more for its entertaining atmosphere during brunch. This is the sort of place locals take their out-of-town guests.
Standard French bistro fare, with some innovative flourishes. Drinks are strong but well made.
The menu offers some standard bistro fare as well as some interesting additions. Try the duck breast with chutney for dinner or the eggs bagatelle for brunch. The latter features smoked salmon and paddle fish caviar.
The atmosphere is boisterous although the decor is decidedly elegant (think black and white walls and crystal chandeliers). Yes, patrons do dance on tables, especially during the champagne brunch when DJs spin energetic tunes.
Service is attentive but can be a bit spotty at times, especially during peak dining times.
On a side street, in the heart of the Meatpacking District.
The dishes can be expensive, especially when compared to brunch and dinner options at more local-centric places in the West Village. Brunch costs $30 per person without alcohol.
