Bastille Day—the joyous French holiday that celebrates the 1789 Storming of the Bastille and the fall of the French monarchy—is today (Tuesday, July 14)! Lucky for Francophiles (and those who enjoy a good cheese plate), you don’t have to get on a plane or spend much time outside of your house to fête like the French. We’ve compiled all the food and drink specials available for takeout and dine-in at local eateries like Cafe Campagne, L’Oursin, and Trophy Cupcakes. À votre santé!
The excellent Post Alley French bistro will replace their usual music-filled Bastille Day celebration with something you can enjoy at home: a bouillabaisse box that comes with all the provisions for a Provençal feast. It comes complete with locally sourced seafood, saffron potatoes, savory broth, baguette crostini, rouille, and aioli, available for pickup or neighborhood delivery from 12-4 pm on Wednesday-Sunday.
