Party Earth Bagatelle Review

The Scene

Bagatelle in LA's Beverly Grove is an upscale French bistro catering to a pretty crowd of Hollywood types. Enjoy a little Los Angeles glitz with Party Earth.

The original New York Bagatelle is legendary for its champagne brunches, and similar notoriety (infamy?) has come to the LA branch of this upscale bistro, giving LA’s fashionable weekenders another excuse to call in sick on Mondays.

Reservations are a must for this Sunday-only offering, when the vanilla French toast and praline-encrusted pancakes all end up drenched by dapper Dons and wafer-thin fashion hounds as they haphazardly spray bottles of Veuve, dip into $250 punch bowls, and dance in their Barolos and sky-high Dodikas to resident DJs spinning upbeat – and very loud – mixes.

Things are a bit more staid during the week, though it remains a sophisticated little haunt where trendy types can pregame over French fare and intricate cocktails. Hollywood insiders crowd the tables with small plates of quail eggs or the signature pickled pork belly, while booths around the edge of the room give haughty European visitors and larger groups more space to enjoy their whole roasted chicken and truffle fries.

Crisp tablecloths cover the tables in the open dining area, a sparsely decorated space save for the ornate chandeliers and scattered pop prints of Ziggy Stardust and the Mona Lisa, while the marble bar in back is regularly lined with models and actors sipping creative cocktails like La Girl From Lima, a jalapeño-infused liqueur with passion fruit puree.

DJs spin under the din of conversation most nights, and as the evening wears on, the bar crowd usually spills into the restaurant until everyone breaks off to hit the clubs.

They all return on Sundays, however. Like very attractive moths to Bagatelle’s flame.

A Little Expensive, but This Will Do
Gerard Nash G. Jun 3, 2013
This place is definitely out of this world. First off, I would love to compliment the service here. Our waitress was a girl named Cindy and she recommended that I ordered the chef's special, along with some other entrees, that were absolutely incredible. Normally, I wouldn't eat here, but this was a special occasion and this place did not disappoint. The music was ambient and soothing and the wait was only thirty minutes, which is good for the higher-end restaurants. Some of the dishes were questionable, but this place was pretty good overall.
A-MAZING!
Gor G. Jun 3, 2013
This place is located in West Hollywood, which means it attracts the hottest looking people in Los Angeles. It has got a very elegant and classy feel to it. If you are looking for a place to your significant other, this place is it! The atmosphere feels very rich and people around you are dressed nice. Do not be surprised if you run into some of the famous people from Hollywood, because this is one of their favorite places to hang out. It turns of money, you better be ready to drop some cash because this place is not cheap.
Boozy Brunch!
Jayson M. Aug 28, 2012
WeHo’s Bagatelle, just like the one in NYC, is well-known for its boozy brunch scene that attracts the sceniest of LA’s scenesters to get alcohol poisoning over punch. It’s a mad house. The women are models and the dudes are all models too, unless they are big wig execs, moneyed bankers, or wealthy Euro imports. You either like this scene or you don’t. I, for one, think it is pretty awful. But I’ve been twice when somebody else was footing the bill and can’t say I minded the eye candy. It’s kinda like you’re in some Kubrick film. Like that Eyes Wide Shut movie where the glitterati get nasty behind closed doors and then chase Tom Cruise around for sneaking into their party. I’m like Tom Cruise. Except I like girls.
