Happy Bastille Day, Barrington! If you’re looking for a great way to celebrate the French holiday locally, they have a great party planned tonight at L’Eiffel Bistrot in South Barrington. When it comes to entertaining in true French style, L’Eiffel Bistrot owner Frank Ferru never disappoints!
Also known as Fête Nationale or Le Quatorze Juillet in France, Bastille Day commemorates the Fête de la Fédération on 14 July 1790, which was organized to conciliate the French Nation after a year of political trouble since the birth of the Assemblée Nationale on 21 June 1789. Though Frank Ferru can’t offer you a front row seat for tonight’s Eiffel Tower fireworks in Paris, France…
He’ll be bringing guests to the Eiffel tower celebration, in spirit, at L’Eiffel Bistrot. Dine at L’Eiffel Bistrot tonight and you’ll be transported to Paris with live music, French Can-can dancers, a special menu and wine selection PLUS $6 glasses of Absinthe from L’Eiffel Bistrot’s highly popular Absinthe Bar!
If you can’t visit L’Eiffel Bistrot tonight, be sure to check it out for one of your next date nights. They always deliver on their promise of authentic French cuisine, dishes made from scratch with the freshest, organic ingredients, one of the area’s best wine lists in a sophisticated setting with “sexy ambiance”. Ooh la la, I’ll toast to that!
You’ll find L’Eiffel Bistrot at The Arboretum of South Barrington, at 100 W. Higgins Road, the corner of Rte. 59 and Higgins Road in South Barrington. To make a reservation, give them a call at 847-428-4783 and to view their menu, visit EiffelBistrot.com.
