All Mariah Carey wants for Christmas is friends, food and flowers—roses to be exact.
The trifecta was present Saturday night at New York City’s Bagatelle, a Big Apple hotspot in the Meatpacking District where Carey enjoyed a “lively group dinner.”
After wrapping up her final Christmas concert at the Beacon Theatre, the Grammy winner headed over to the A-list haunt surrounded by a large entourage, including Empire star Jussie Smollett and backup dancer beau Bryan Tanaka, a source tells E! News. Carey sported a curve-hugging dress paired with fishnet stockings for the late-night occasion.

Seated at a packed horizontal table covered in rose petals and lit candles, Mariah indulged in steak, tuna tartare and an ice cream sundae. According to the source, at one point during the night, Mariah took the four dozen roses that were spread across the table and had fun throwing them into the air while her signature hit, “All I Want for Christmas Is You” played out in the background.
It wasn’t long before she lead the group in a festive sing-a-long to her hit track while diners were preoccupied with documenting the moment on their cell phones.
Of course, this is far from the first time the musical icon has performed the holiday classic. Most recently, she and a bevy of other stars, including Demi Lovato, Chris Martin, and Gwen Stefani, sang the classic in a holiday rendition of James Corden‘s Carpool Karaoke.
We don’t doubt Tanaka enjoyed the private performance. “I’ve always had a thing for Mariah,” Tanaka previously told E! News exclusively. “I love her so much.”
