Where to celebrate Bastille Day in Brisbane

Bastille Day: July 14.

A monumental day in French culture, Bastille Day is a celebration of all things France! Brisbane’s best French restaurants love to get around this special day, and here’s what they’re dishing up.

MONTRACHET | BOWEN HILLS

It’s back! King Street’s Montrachet is opening its doors again from July 14, and our stomachs are rumbling at just the thought of that bouillabaisse… 

Now, we have good news and we have bad news. We’ll start with the bad: their Bastille Day event sold on in record time. But now they’re open again, why not book a table for a belated celebration of all things French? We can’t think of a better (or yummier) place to do so. 

AQUITAINE BRASSERIE | SOUTH BANK

What if we told you that you could experience the delightful taste of Versailles, Nice, Montrachet, and many more iconic regions at Aquitaine without needing to leave your seat? This stunning South Bank eatery is dishing up a three-course menu including your choice of classics like wagyu tartare, bouillabaisse, and crème brûlée to celebrate Bastille Day, and we have no doubt that it will be up to its usual, impeccable standard. See the menu and book in here.

BOUCHER FRENCH BISTRO | GRACEVILLE

Can you smell that?

This cosy little bistro in the ‘burbs is serving up a six-course degustation celebrating black truffle. Set to tantalise the taste buds (and, really, all our other senses) we’re almost as keen for the canapes as we are for the main events, with bite-sized morsels like truffled egg and snail quiches on the cards! Call 3716 0388 or email info@boucher.com.au to book your seat at the delicious table.

C’EST BON | EAST BRISBANE

Well the name says it all.

This will certainly be a day to remember with C’est Bon’s six courses of French fare! We’re talking parfait eclairs to begin (sorry, but how cool is that!?) and of course, duck a l’orange for the fourth course. What more could you want? 

LA CACHE A VIN | SPRING HILL

This Bastille Day, La Cache is serving up a five-course, traditional meal (with champagne) and it has us drooling at the thought. Start with foie gras and fresh black truffle, before grilled scallops with truffle butter, lobster and saffron risotto, veal fillet with foie gras and truffle, and your choice of a chocolatey dessert or fromage. Sound good? Call 3924 0501 to book. 

 

Wherever you end up, we have a feeling you’re going to be well fed. It’s the French way.
