Patrons who like their eggs Benedict served with pumping dance music, pyrotechnic champagne, and beautiful girls dancing wildly on the tables should head to Brasserie Beaumarchais, one of the few venues in town where brunch devolves into an all-day dance party.

The bistro hides its fun-loving personality behind an elegant décor of hardwood floors, white walls, candlelit white-clothed tables, crystal chandeliers, and tasteful modern artwork, which attracts a weeknight crowd of affluent foodies and professionals who fill the tables to enjoy some civilized conversation and modern French cuisine.

Later on and on weekends, artsy nine-to-fivers, Euro jet-setters, bachelorette parties, and rich kids hit the scene to grab a drink and mingle at the bustling white marble bar.

However, the place shows its true colors on Saturdays and Sundays, when an otherwise regular brunch – albeit with a rocking DJ – turns into an unbridled celebration after 3pm, when the volume goes up, the lights go down, and the bistro breaks into an explosion of table dancing and sparkler-enhanced bottle service.

Brunch reservations are highly recommended, though patrons who miss out can always pop in for one of the theme parties to experience Brasserie Beaumarchais’ signature mix of upscale environment and lawless celebration.

Tip from Adriana:

There’s no reason to go if you don’t order a double magnum of champagne! Do it, and get the full treatment – a total blackout and a train of servers bringing you and your friends the ice bucket of champagne with sparklers in hand to a backdrop of the Superman theme song. Hard to find a more exciting and booze-filled brunch!

  • Crowd

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    Menu of contemporary French cuisine including truffled gnocchi and steak frites. Brunch menu featuring croque madame sandwiches, salads, and egg dishes served Sa–Su 11:30am–6pm. Sidewalk café, weather permitting. Kitchen closes at 11pm.

Most fun brunch
jacqueline E. Dec 12, 2012
I have been here for brunch on many occasions, and it is sooo much fun. There isnt so much strictness at the door so larger groups, or groups that include a lot of guys wont be forced to get a bunch of bottles. The food is pretty good, but that isn't the main reason to come here. Arrive around 1 if you want a more quiet brunch and want to carry on conversations, this is also prime seating time, as you may have to wait if you come later. At 2pm sharp the lights dim, the curtains close and the music is pumped up. Everyone has their brunch tables so it is never over crowded, exeept by the bar area, but it isn't too bad. The people are cool and very diverse in age, style and background, the artwork is great and the ambiance is awesome.
Another Trendy Dinner Spot
Risa C. Dec 7, 2012
Maybe my title is a little harsh - but it takes a lot to really stand out as a trendy restaurant in the Meatpacking District. The restaurant formerly known as Bagatelle is known for its chichi dinner and crazy brunches so for being a solid brunch party I'll give it one of the 4 possible stars. For the actual food, I'll give it another half. The food isn't bad, but it's one of those places you go when people are like "I love good food, cover everything I eat in truffle oil." Ill give it the second half a star in my review because while the place gets pretty busy at night particularly thurs-sat a lot of the tables are promoter driven aka guys being paid to take models here who want to eat a leaf of arugula (in truffle oil), and maybe half a slice of bread (in truffle oil) and call it a day - which also speaks somewhat to the quality of the food. However, if you are looking for a place to seen and be seen while drinking many bottles of champagne and vodka with dinner, this is a good place for the ambiance.
Faire La Moyenne De

If Beaumarchais has officially taken over Bagatelle with its name, then add two more stars. If you mean the dinner alternative to the brunch Bagatelle, which did re-open, then I suggest Bagatelle any day. I am biased because of the awesome Halloween party at Bagatelle, but I went to Beaumarchais for dinner and just was not impressed by anything. It's the same exact place, but the scene felt less lively and older. I never went there for brunch because I assumed that was what Bagatelle was for, but maybe brunch is a better time to visit Beaumarchais. The dinner food was okay. I suggest checking out a place nearby and then going there to drink.
