Last week, I was invited to a food blogger dinner at Bagatelle in the Meatpacking District. I haven’t been invited to a food blog event in a while. I kind of felt that food blogs had been on their way out for a while, so no hard feelings.

When I showed up, everyone else was an Instagrammer. I was surprised, but it makes sense. Instagram is very social and photos are easy to be discovered through tags and hashtags. It was my first dinner with Instagrammers. I think half of the photos I took were of them taking pictures with their phones. I’m not sure they liked that.

17 Instagrammers food blogging

Anyway, about the restaurant… I rarely went to food blog dinners when I was asked back in the day. But I checked out Bagatelle’s Yelp page and it looked crazy. Many of the Yelp pics were people dancing on tables or the waiters in costume bringing out bottles with sparklers and riding on another one’s shoulders. I really wanted to see this.

Unfortunately for me, it was more about the food at this dinner. The party is usually during brunch apparently. Apparently they are trying to highlight the new chef and menu.

The food was fancy and pretty good. And now that I look at the menu, that was a really expensive dinner we ate. I’m like whoa. Here’s what we ate below. I remember liking the cod. I didn’t realize there was truffles on the pizza or the chicken. Didn’t notice it. But one of the Instagrammers really liked the chicken. I wonder if she knew there was truffle in there.

· 1 ceviche king crab
· tuna tartar
· beef tartar
· 1 gnocchi
· 1 octopus
· 1 ravioli
· 1 pizza truffle

· 1 linguine spiny lobster
· 1 whole chicken and black truffle
· 1 duck special
· 1 cod special

· 2 chocolate mousse
· 1 pavlova
· 1 choux choux
· 2 special eclair
· 1 tart lemon
· 1 Sundae

There was one crazy thing. We had this gigantic sundae at the end with sparklers. And maybe I saw some flashing lights in the corner of the dining room. I think it was someone’s birthday. Or maybe I had too much to drink.
