How to celebrate Bastille Day in Melbourne
The Art Deco gastropub will be holding a four-course, $65 lunch for Bastille Day. On the menu will be chèvre tartlet, bisque de crabe and boeuf bourguignon. For dessert, you'll have your choice of creme brûlee, tarte tatin, or crêpes Suzette.
The French bakery has created its own take on a Paris-Brest, a dessert made of choux pastry and praline cream. This Paris-Brest is in an oval shape, though traditionally they are wheel-shaped, with a hole in the middle. Laurent's éclair-shaped Paris-Brest also comes topped with a French flag made of white chocolate. It's available in store from July 7 to July 15.
You will literally feel on top of the world, or at least the city, at this French-inspired brunch. From 11am, the brunch will include French food and of course, French bubbles and cocktails. Tickets are $70, all inclusive.
