Celebrate Bastille Day

Save This Date…
Saturday, July 14th – Bastille Day Patou will be celebrating like never before. They’ll be offering an outstanding 3-course meal with complimentary charcuterie plate for only $25. Plus you’ll have free admission to their Bastille Day dance party later that evening. Vive la Revolution!

Jacques Pepin on Bastille Day:
“They dance in the street, they drink champagne, and this is a ‘dance populaire.’ It is not a family holiday. It is really an expression of democracy, if you want, in the sense that people take their fun in the street, usually as a kind of brotherhood of people. Food-it’s always food in France, of course-food, wine, champagne and dancing, that type of stuff. Besides, of course, remembrance.
“There is not really any specialty dish like there would be for Christmas or like barbecue on July Fourth. It’s more of a plentiful thing…and people eating in bistros, but not specialty dishes.”
