When it comes to celebrating Bastille Day, Frenchies is something of a default option. But does that make it a bad default option, like an airport vending machine? Oh, no, no, no, no, no – au contraire!
Frenchies is the place for food and beer lovers to spend Bastille Day simply because no one represents that part of the world in this part of the world quite like the Rosebery brewery-bistro.
This year they're using the occasion to launch a limited release Bastille 1789 blonde lager (which will be available right throughout July) but they're also putting on four nights of dedicated Bastille-gustations that feature many of the reasons we love French food so damn much – think of delights like duck foie gras and Cassoulet Montalbanais and you're very much in the ballpark. And that's without mentioning the fine work of the resident pastry chef...
The four course dinners will be hosted between July 13-16 with tickets costing $85 per head. You can make a booking, for a time of your choosing, through their website.
