For 232 years, the French have annually celebrated Bastille Day, the national holiday that marked a turning point of the French Revolution and the unity of the French people. Here in Washington DC, we may be a plane ride away from the home of the “City of Lights,” but we can still celebrate delicious French cuisine at our local restaurants.
When Bastille Day arrives on July 14, celebrate the holiday with cassoulet, coq au vin, boeuf bourguignon and other traditional French dishes at French restaurants located near our RESA apartments.
