Allons enfants de la Patrie, le jour de gloire est arrivé!

Happy Bastille Day!

The quatorze juillet is to France what the Fourth of July is to Americans - a celebration of revolution and the overthrow of a monarchy, complete with parades and fireworks. Sadly, though it would be an excellent excuse to eat crêpes and salade niçoise all day long, the United States does not yet recognize the holiday.

That said, any French restaurant you visit today should be doing something outrageously fun. What better day to munch on some steak tartare or kick the evening off with a kir royale? Or, if you can't make it to La Grenouille tonight, have a look at these France-based bloggers. You'll be singing La Marseillaise in no time.

Happy Bastille Day, ma petite chouette! Are you going to the Park Ave street fair?

Malheureusement, non. I was busy cleaning up from my dinner party and cleaning house in anticipation of Jane's arrival toi? Crepes for dinner?
