Bastille Day

FBi Radio Friday July 13, 2012

The 14th of July, otherwise known as Bastille Day is upon us...tomorrow in fact. A great opportunity to get your French on, there are plenty of Gallic restaurants, pubs and markets hosting their own little fist pump for their day of national pride. Here are a few places worth checking out:

The Restaurant - Felix

With a three course meal including a glass of Champagne or Kronenbourg beer, diners who drop in for lunch or dinner tomorrow can choose from dishes such as twice baked gruyere souffle, classic steak frites with herb butter and bombe Alaska with gingerbread, honey ice cream, apples and pear.
