You have just realized that today, July 14th, is Bastille Day, and want to celebrate the French national holiday? We have put together for you a list of restaurants, in Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco, that are commemorating what the French call “La Fête Nationale.”
A quick history: July 14, 1789 was the storming of the Bastille fortress-prison which led to La Révolution Française. Now, on the morning of the 14th, the Champs-Élysées is taken over by the French army for the oldest and largest regular military parade in Europe. (Ironic as in 1789, the day was a pure demonstration against power.)
