More Bastille Day Celebrations

Our personal favorite for Bastille Day is still heading up to Eastern State Penitentiary in Fairmount but that doesn’t mean we aren’t tempted by these Bastille Day celebrations.

Bistro St. Tropez
It’s the 20th year Bistro St. Tropez has been hosting their Bastille Day celebration. Owner Patrice Rames is creating a special 3-course menu for just $35. And that price includes complimentary carafe of wine per table of 4 people and live Jazz piano. [Bistro St. Tropez]

Brasserie Perrier
It’s always a lively time at Brasserie Perrier with a DJ fueled party spilling out onto the sidewalk. A $30 three-course menu rounds up the fun.[Brasserie Perrier]

La Boheme
11th Street’s La Boheme will add a special 4-course, $40 menu to their regular offerings for Bastille Day.

Bistro St. Tropez’ east-side sister restaurant, Patou is offering a $25 prix fixe menu in their open-air dining room in Old City. [Patou]
