You're midway through an order of Le Pain Perdu ($18), otherwise known as Nutella French toast, and all of a sudden the restaurant goes dark. Large black blinds are draped over the brasserie's floor-to-ceiling windows; you're left confused and accidentally spill Nutella on your clothes. Then you hear a loud thump, followed by another, and another. Brunch at Bagatelle is more than just eggs and bacon. It's a booze-filled, DJ-spinning soirée fit for the hippest brunchgoers in town. The menu includes traditional favorites like buttermilk pancakes ($19), a spicy crab Benedict ($24), and a turkey BLT ($22). There are kettles filled with warm tea and coffee, or you can opt for spirits, including vodka. Though the atmosphere is unconventional, it's exactly what you'd expect of Miami — rowdy, boozy, and surprisingly tasty.
