What's the new(er) restaurant that was opened by the former managers of Le Bilboquet?

Does anyone know the name of the restaurant opened by the former managers of Le Bilboquet? I heard that it was Bistro Bagatelle, but I don't know if that's right. Thanks.

      That explains a lot, though I think the food at Bilbouquet is better (based on my husband's reports - I've refused to go to Bilbouquet for ages).

      I will say that the front of house staff was much more pleasant than I recall it being at Bilbouquet.

        I always try to find something positive about a place...but Le Bilboquet? If a bad McDonald's dressed in drag and charged absurd prices for their chicken strips and burgers, you'd probably wind up with something very close to Bilbo...as their adoring teeny boppers call it. If you still insist on going, wear a disguise and use someone else's credit card....you definitely dont want to be identified at Bilbo.

          Bagatelle is a horrible euro nightclub disguised as a restauarant....if you like guys with slick hair and really tight pants and the skanky girls who love them this place if for you..It is an an endless procession of champagne bottles with sparklers coming out the top and guys waiving their napkins over their heads...
