How Bagatelle’s Culinary Philosophy is Disrupting the Restaurant Industry

One of the most fulfilling aspects of a meaningful life is connecting with other humans over shared interests and experiences. Throughout history and across different civilizations, culinary culture is one of the most important ways groups of people express themselves and connect with each other. Whether one is looking to connect with family, friends, colleagues, or strangers, sharing a meal is one of the easiest yet most intimate ways to do so. Of course, this is something the late great Anthony Bourdain understood as his show captured the hearts and minds of the global audiences due to his ability to display human joy over shared over the local cuisine of various international cities. 

Unfortunately, due to new COVID-19 norms, humans have been in desperate need of connection and interaction. Now, as the pandemic has calmed down a bit prompting offices, venues, and even entire cities to re-open, people are jumping at the opportunity to be together. 

Bagatelle is a global restaurant brand intent on facilitating the best experience, culinary and generally, for their patrons as possible. Serving customers a delicious and generous meal that is intent on being shared as well as actively facilitating a festive, wholesome, and exciting ambiance, Bagatelle restaurants are the perfect place to reconnect with loved ones. 

Harkening to the founders’ love of the French Riviera, Bagatelle restaurants deliberately incorporate a French Mediterranean style all while including ingredients that are meaningful to the local cuisine of each venue. Head Chef Rocco Seminara leads the culinary philosophy for the brand, making sure each venue’s chef highlights regional, organic, sustainable, and cruelty-free produce in order to develop original menus with dishes, desserts, and cocktails meant to put a smile on their patrons’ faces. With deep experience in Michelin star restaurants, Seminara joined the Bagatelle team almost two years ago and works closely with Bagatelle Chef Manon Santini, who brings her essential creativity, and world-champion sweet pizzas, to all desserts menus.

While each Bagatelle location is branded as a French Mediterranean restaurant, the head chef of each venue creates original dishes, desserts, and cocktails. Drawing upon fresh local ingredients, Bagatelle chefs pride themselves on their originality and ability to inspire patrons to order the entire menu. As most Bagatelle dishes are designed to be shared, patrons are wise to have a little bit of everything. 

In addition to its culinary philosophy, Bagatelle also has an original philosophy when it comes to serving food. All Bagatelle servers give patrons an intimate experience, cutting steaks, whole chickens, and fresh fish in front of them. More notably, Bagatelle staff members actually participate in any impromptu festivities; servers have been known to jump on tables and party with willing patrons. At almost all of Bagatelle’s locations, patrons can stay after hours for more exciting party experiences. 

No other restaurant can offer exquisite food with this much excitement. A bagatelle meal is truly a transformative experience.

Working with Chef Bilal Amrani at the famous Bagatelle St. Tropez location – where the legendary establishment is celebrating its 10th anniversary next year, patrons come for the  Seabass Carpaccio, John Dory meunier with three caviar sauce, and chocolate pizza with caramelized peanuts, but stay for the refreshing beach cocktails, live music, the sunset parties. 

Under the guidance of Chef François-Laurent Apchié at the Bagatelle London venue, customers can expect a slice of St. Tropez in the middle of their Saturday brunch in Mayfair. With local favorites like Stuffed Spunta Potato, Lobster Fettuccine, as well as another original dessert pizza (with milk chocolate and caramelized hazelnuts), Bagatelle London is a favorite for Londoners who want a boozy brunch or a fine dining dinner experience. 

As one analyzes the Bagatelle menus, the French Mediterranean restaurant brand boasts even more unique dishes and cocktails highlighting the local ingredients not available in other venues. Under the leadership of Chef Jimmy de Almeida,  Bagatelle Miami offers a highly sought-after seasonal truffle; under the leadership of Chef Marco Estrada, Bagatelle Tulum offers a highly-unique avocado & goat cheese pizza and various mezcal cocktails.

With locations across the United States, Europe, the Mediterranean, and the Middle East, we are excited to visit Bagatelle’s newest expansion locations in Mykonos, Bodrum, and Miami.
