Bastille Day, or La Fête Nationale, celebrated on July 14 is the day the revolutionaries - in form of a mob - stormed the Bastille. It is quintessentially marked as the end of the French monarchy. A revolution followed and freedom! Happy Birthday, France! What did we get? The Universal Rights of Man, for one. Of Course, also the democratization of everything French culture. Champagne is available to the masses! Happy Birthday, France!
Bastille Day is the one day of the year when Chez Oskar lets it all hang out a bit, by celebrating a total immersion in everything French. Inside, a veritable explosion of flavor through a specially crafted prix-fixe menu, for delectable $45, is seasoned with a glass of champagne, or several..
Chez Oskar's selection of French beers, pastis and apertifs will give you the courage to face the Patanque tournament outside - replete with sand - and possibly win. From Chez Oskar's perennial Can-Can dancers to the newly Robespierre photo booth, (yes, that's right, you can take your photo next to the French hero) this year's celebration in Fort Greene will delight and satisfy. There's simply no better way to spend a Sunday in New York.
So, Grab a Pernod or Ricard, step outside and enjoy the sidewalk of exploding color, sights and sound. Chez Oskar's Bastille Day Celebration kicks off at 11am on Sunday, July 14, 2013.
