Bastille Day 2017

On July 14th the French celebrate Bastille Day. This day marks the end of monarchy and the beginning of the French Revolution.

For the French, the day is the "Fête Nationale" and is not only a national holiday, but a day of community celebration.

In nearly every town or "commune" there are parades, fireworks and dinner parties. Bastille Day in France is a celebration, and everyone is invited to the party. 

Fête Nationale

On Friday July 14th we will be preparing a 3-course dinner menu in celebration of that holiday in France. Happy Hour will be available from 5PM to 7PM, and our regular dinner menu will NOT be served.

In addition, this special dinner will also feature Bonnie Birch from 5:30pm to 9pm. Bonnie Birch is a virtuoso accordionist from the Seattle area. She plays many types of music but loves French music from classical to traditional. Bonnie performed in Carnegie Hall at the age of 19.


Reserve early as space is limited.

Open from 5:00PM to 10PM. Only the special set menu below will be available plus Happy Hour (5-7PM). Book on-line here or call us at 206-682-7270.
