This white-washed Meatpacking standby nods to Saint–Tropez’s glitzy party scene with crystal chandeliers and champagne-soaked brunches legendary for tabletop dancing. Food may be beside the point, but revelers can find clubby French-Mediterranean fare, like ahi tuna tartare with avocado salad and a lime-soy vinaigrette; truffled chicken with roasted potatoes; and pan-seared sea scallops with braised endive and vanilla beurre blanc.

Think fine dining x upscale club and you get Bagatelle on a weekend night. Everything, including the food (I had tuna tartare and gnocchi), the drink (excellent bottle service), and the waitstaff (handsome french-speaking men that dance and deliver bottles/cakes in costumes), made for a phenomenal experience. The best part, however, was the atmosphere. The DJ here knows what makes people want to dance. Bagatelle is essentially a purveyor of glamorous fun. So if that's what you're looking for, check it out!
