Where to Dine on Bastille Day 2019

Vive freedom and foie gras!

As much as I adore the explosion of Fourth of July fireworks, as much as I oohed and aahed this year at the dazzling, majestic illuminations that burst above my friends and me in Fair Park and Fort Worth, my holiday has always been Bastille Day. I’d trade stars and stripes for the bloody rally of the Marseillaise, Congressional declarations for the storming of the Bastille. I’m French, and so when we turn the corner into summer, and freedom shimmers on the horizon, I start to think in terms of Lillet, Suze, and Pastis.

You needn’t love cherry clafoutis as much as I do to want to check out these Bastille Day nibbles and extend the red, white, and blue.
