Picture a place like Bagatelle, now put it on 60th Street. That’s Le Bilboquet. You can stop by for brunch, eat some pricey French food, then dance on a banquette with a sparkler in your hand while shouting a variation of “woo.” So if you’re in Midtown, and you’d rather be in the Meatpacking district, but you’re too day-drunk or lazy to make it down, this place will do. You should also know that, for some reason, the signature dish here is Cajun chicken.
