Etoile Cuisine et Bar Celebrates Bastille Day with a Special Menu

July 14, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Off With Their Heads! (But Let’s Eat First)

A revolting day just screams for a revolting celebration, complete with a revolting meal which can be carefully paired with wines.That day and celebration would be July 14, best known in France as Bastille Day.

It’s all revolting, not in today’s meaning of the word, but in that it celebrates the beginning of a revolution, the one that brought down the aristocracy in France some 230 years ago. It was on Tuesday, July 14, 1789, that angry crowds stormed the notorious Bastille prison in Paris.

What was not so festive then is now, and July 14 is celebrated throughout France, and since in Houston, there’s really not anything more French than Uptown’s Étoile Cuisine et Bar, Fête de la Bastille will also be celebrated there. Beginning at 7 p.m., Sunday, July 14, Chef Philippe Verpiand will be presenting a most celebratory prix-fixe, four-course menu which will come with options for paired wines with each course. To add to the festivities, there will be live music all evening.

The complete menu is $78 per person, plus tax and gratuity. (Wine pairings are available for an additional cost.) Reservations are encouraged. For reservations or information, call 832-668-5808 or go to www.etoilecuisine.com.
