5 Restaurants Perfect for Celebrating Bastille Day

We missed the festival over the weekend, but there are still restaurants to help us celebrate today.

WE MAY HAVE HAD TO SAY au revoir to Bastille Day this summer but that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate like the French this year. 

July 14 marks the anniversary of the original Storming of the Bastille in 1789 and is a national holiday in France. So, this 14 Juillet dine on some of the French food Milwaukee offers. Allons-y!

1. Le Rêve Patisserie & Café

7610 HARWOOD AVE., WAUWATOSA

A local favorite, Le Rêve offers classic French delicacies like its Crostini de Brie and a variety of macarons. Le Rêve is currently open for both dine-in and carry out, giving customers the option of family-style takeaway.

From July 13-16 “Petit Le Rêve” will be stationed at Root Common Park with traditional French fare and Bastille Day special macaron ice cream sandwiches. 

2. Lagniappe Brasserie 

17001 W. GREENFIELD AVE., NEW BERLIN

Try some flavors à la française in dishes like vichyssoise and mascarpone and sausage ravioli at Lagniappe Brasserie. Many of the dishes incorporate fresh herbs and vegetables from Lagniappe’s own garden, oh là là! Lagniappe is open for regular business and carry out. 

3. Pastiche Bistro 

4313 W. RIVER LANE, BROWN DEER

If you’ve been craving Ratatouille, Pastiche Bistro is for you. With both dine-in and carry-out options, you can celebrate le révolution with profiteroles and feel as if you’re truly in Paris.  

4. The Beerline Cafe 

2076 N. COMMERCE ST. 

It wouldn’t be a true French food list without a cafe. And it really wouldn’t be a true French food list without a beaucoup of crepes. Explore sweet and savory crepes or even make your own and create a flavor combination with a certain je ne sais quoi. Although Beerline Cafe’s dining hall and patio are closed, you can still order curbside pick up. 

5. The Melting Pot 

19850 W. BLUEMOUND RD., BROOKFIELD

Although the French and the Swiss both claim ownership of fondue, it can still be your celebration meal of choice. Indulge in some Wisconsin cheese fondue or stick to the theme and go with the Coq a Vin cooking style. The Melting Pot has both dine-in and carry-out options.
