OK, so I may have overdone it with all these posts about French places in Miami this month, but there's a good reason for it, which is that Bastille Day is coming up on July 14th! Whether you want to party like a Frenchman or just want an excuse to have champagne on a Tuesday, here are five great places you can celebrate French national day, and maybe score a drink or two in the process:
Bastille Party at Buena Vista Chocolate & Wine
The people behind Buena Vista Bistro and Deli are hosting a Bastille Day party at their chocolate & wine shop next door. From 7 pm to 9 pm, enjoy complimentary Champagne, hors d'oeuvre and take home a gift from Caron Paris, the legendary perfume house, which will be having a special display at the event.
Three Course Lunch Special at Downtown Bistro
If you work around the Downtown/Brickell area, Downtown Bistro is offering a special three course lunch deal with signature dishes like escargot a la creme, mariner style mussels and creme brûlée, PLUS a glass of sparkling wine for a mere $21. How do you say "that's a steal" in French?
Three Course Dinner Deal at Bistro Cassis
Midtown’s neighborhood Parisian café, Bistro Cassis, is celebrating with a one-night-only special menu filled with traditional French favorites like steak tartare, boeuf bourguignon and crepes Suzette. The indulgent three-course prix-fixe menu is priced at $39 per person and will be available during dinner service from 5PM to closing.
Complimentary Glass of Champagne at Colette Bistro
If you are hanging around South Beach for Bastille Day, stop by Colette Bistro on Lincoln Road for a free glass of Champagne, and stick around to enjoy some of the authentic French fare that this place has to offer.
Party Like a Frenchman at Bagatelle
For the lucky people that don't have desk jobs and get to party hard on a Tuesday, Bagatelle Miami Beach is hosting "Allons Enfants de la Partie" with 100% French tunes all night by Vincent Daubas.
