A new seasonal menu

Bagatelle - Tomatoes

Bringing Parisian haute cuisine to the table is Bagatelle’s new menu. Curated by head chef Ricardo Goncalves, this luxurious hotspot boasts France’s rich culinary history with a modern take on these new dishes. By emulating an intangible cultural heritage to each dish, the unmistakable French flair is seen in a new light. Starting with the most popular dishes, the Tuna Tartare is served with a refreshing contemporary take with avocado puree, cucumber and orange dressing with La Tomate-a beef tomato stuffed with homemade fresh ricotta, heirloom cherry tomatoes, black olive granola, tomato consommé and basil vinaigrette.
