French-Belgian restaurant Franco-Belge is celebrating Bastille Day (and its first birthday) with a three-course ultra-French set menu on Sunday, July 14. It includes a glass of bubbles, and French tunes will be playing from 7pm. The set menu is $85, and you can choose from dishes like French onion soup, goat's cheese salad or escargot to start, and confit duck, beef tartare or Scotch fillet for main. Dessert will be small pastries.
Joyeux Quatorze Juillet! While Bastille Day in France is all about celebrating independence, in Australia is a bit like St Patrick's Day (with less drinking). It doesn't matter if you're not French, you can still participate in the festivities.
We've put together a list of the best events happening this Bastille Day, so whether you want to celebrate July 14 because it's part of your heritage or if you're just in it for the croissants, here's where you'll find the best festivities.
