After months of build-up and anticipation, Bagatelle at the Tropicana is ready.

The long-awaited supper club and nightclub is finally open for a “sneak preview,” following a Halloween masquerade celebration with Dylan McDermott of “American Horror Story,” DJ Mitch LJ and pop star Ultra Naté.

Revelers partied into the early morning hours, inaugurating what is sure to be a unique and successful blend of fine dining and nightlife in Las Vegas.

Bagatelle will be fully open after its Nov. 16 grand opening celebration, though the supper club is already taking dinner reservations for the preview period through  Nov. 15.

The South of France-inspired  menu includes a variety of inspired dishes from chef John Zamarchi, including: gnocchi a la Parisienne (housemade gnocchi, black truffle pesto filling, truffle sauce), tartare de thon bagatelle (ahi tuna tartare, avocado salad, lime soy vinaigrette, taro chips), coquillettes au jus truffés (elbow pasta, truffle veal jus, French ham, Swiss cheese) and truffled roasted chicken for two (country style potatoes, foie gras sauce).

You can find Bagatelle just off Tropicana Avenue on Ocean Drive – it’s actually pretty easy to spot, as the club has its own porte-cochere and entrance.

Bagatelle Brunch is slated to start in late December, and the Bagatelle Beach day club opens in spring 2013. Supper club reservations are available at (702) 701-0200.
