Where To Eat French Food- Meatpacking, NYC-

Rarely, do I  head to the Meatpacking District, unless I want a few laughs. It’s not that there is any great comedy club, or a special street comic that I love, but the streets are made of cobblestone.

Don’t get me wrong, cobblestone, isn’t funny.  Per se.  What does make me  laugh there, is the abundance of young women, who are trying to maneuver the streets in very high heels.

Good Times + Good Food, + Good People = Bagatelle

Along with several other Food Bloggers, I was treated to a holiday dinner party, at Bagatelle, in the Meatpacking District. Not one to pass up a free meal, I showed up ready for action, replete with my camera, appetite and dancing shoes.

Hey Mr. DJ, Keep Playing That Song!

I’d heard that Bagatelle, has a reputation for being a wild restaurant. A frenzied French place to drink, eat and dance on the tables. Right up my alley!

They have a great DJ, spinning some outrageous and danceable tunes. It was a quiet night, however and I was the only one on the whole place who was dancing, and I stayed on the floor.

Sweet Stuff

The desserts flowed freely too. I think that there were 20 desserts on the table. Profiteroles were fair. Apple Tart Tatine, excellent.  Floating Island. Not my thing. It was too big, too airy, to liquid-y.  I didn’t have room to taste the Brioche and Pear Bread Pudding. Maybe next time.

One Teeny Problem

I did have one teeny beef with the meal. Due to a “Lost in Translation” moment, most of the flood that we didn’t eat, did not make it into the to-go containers that I had requested. I had asked the wait staff to divided all of it, into 3 separate portions, for those of us that wanted to relive the Bagatelle experience the next day.  Only a small portion of it didn’t go in the trash. I hate wasted food. Just saying.

Thank you Blue Polo Interactive for including me in the Blogger Party. I would highly recommend Bagatelle, especially if you like great food and love to dance! I will definitely return.
