Bagatelle or Crispo for brunch???

I will be visiting NYC. A friend said that I should experience Bagatelle brunch so I made an rsvp for 3:30 Sunday. The problem is, I originally wanted to brunch at Crispo that day as well. (Can't do both.)

Has anyone been to Bagatelle at 3:30? Would the party have died down by then? If so, I'd rather do Crispo. If not, then I'll keep my rsvps.

Thanks in advance!

  1. do you know anything about the 'bagatelle brunch?' its pretty much a running joke in nyc. people from staten island dancing on tables after eating their mediocre eggs benedict, downing cheap rose, all while listening to eastern european remixes of black eyed peas songs.

    never been to crispo for brunch before and only moderately like the place for dinner.

    if you're looking for a good scene at brunch, cookshop is a good option.

      I've only been to Bagatelle once, and for dinner, and I do not recommend it either. Never been to Crispo, but seems like a slam dunk to me.
