This July 14, we will celebrate the 231st anniversary of Bastille Day, which is the anniversary of the Storming of the Bastille in 1789, a turning point of the French Revolution. However, you don’t need to have even stepped on French soil to celebrate – instead, you can head to one of the many French eateries we have in our Alston neighborhood.

If you’re looking to enjoy authentic French dishes such as coq au vin, cassoulet and boeuf bourguignon on Bastille Day, check out some of these French restaurants nearby for a meal that’ll make you feel like you’re dining in the heart of Paris.

Le Soir, located at 825 Montauk Hwy, Bayport which is 11 minutes from your Alston apartment, is known for their fine French cuisine prepared in an inviting, cottage-style setting with fixed-price meals available.

And don’t worry, this popular French eatery is also offering outdoor dining starting at 5 p.m. every Tuesday through Saturday as well as takeout, so you can bring fine French dishes right to your Alston apartment.

Voila the Bistro, located at 244 Lake Ave, St James which is 16 minutes from your Alston apartment, is a romantic spot with a Victorian setting offering a French bistro menu including escargot and branzini.

Often regarded as Lake Avenue’s hidden gem, Voila offers a bistro experience in a casual setting. Their carefully crafted menu, exquisite wine selection, pristine service and warm ambiance is a perfect fit for any occasion. Guests can also relax and enjoy their meal outside on their quaint patio.
