Celebrating the French Way

This Sunday is Bastille Day. I always celebrate the French national holiday by indulging in French food and wine. Almost all of the city’s French restaurants will be celebrating the event with special menus or entertainment. I love dining at these establishments on Bastille Day, with the sound of live French café music in the background. Check out YELP for French restaurants near you—there are great options in any neighborhood. If you can’t get a table, then plan on celebrating Bastille Day at home with a good bottle of French wine. How about trying some summer-appropriate white wines, like Chablis, Sancerre, or Semillon? Or, pick up a bottle of Champagne to really celebrate. You can find great bottles for as little as $40. Happy Bastille Day!
