  1. There's a street fair on 60th (or 61st) every year. Don't know this year's date, though.

      Anybody knows a nice French restaurant to celebrate Bastille Day this year?

        Gascogne. Les Halles. Or in Brooklyn Bar Tabac (complete with petanque). All 3 have major celebrations.

        1. re: chow_gal

          Bar Tabac is the best place to celebrate Bastille Day, almost all of Smith street is closed and the street's are filled with sand for petanque along with food vendors

        Is that E. 60th (at the French Institute) or W.60th?

          FIAF's Bastille Day celebration on E. 60th St. will take place on Sunday, July 13th.

        2. Cercle Rouge in Tribeca has a 3 course menu for $40 plus a band.

          1. Scroll halfway down to the 'Gallic Fun" section of this short NY Sun article for info on events at Gavroche, Paris Commune and Payard Bistro.


            1. r.i.p. at one time the best of them all -- the former FLORENT bastille day party.
