The summer fun just keeps on going here in Savannah. While we celebrate our independence on July 4th, our friends in France celebrate their independence on July 14th. And since here in Savannah, we never pass up a good opportunity to pass up an excuse to celebrate, we look forward to celebrating Bastille Day. Luckily, a couple of our favorite French spots in downtown Savannah know how to do Bastille Day just right.
39 Rue de Jean is already well-known for its delicious Tuesday special of all-you-can-eat mussels (available 6 different ways). 39 Rue de Jean will be hosting a special extended Happy Hour from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. This party will be on Bastille Day, which falls on Friday, July 14th. The menu will include happy hour food favorites such as mussels, the Brasserie Burger, and the Duck Confit Sandwich. French favorites such as frog’s legs, poutine, and Brittany salad will also be on the menu. The bar staff has whipped up a special cocktail just for Bastille Day. Besides this cocktail, the bar menu will also be offering a special price on wines from French vintner Louis Latour.
The crew over at Circa 1875 will also be celebrating Bastille Day. Circa 1875’s celebrations will begin Thursday, July 13th and continue through to July 15th. For each of these nights, Chef David will be preparing a different French specialty, as well as the restaurant’s usual menu items. Both the dining area and the bar will feature the usual menus of delectable French wines and food. Musical entertainment will be provided, as well as a crepe station. Since Circa 1875 is known and loved for its intimate and cozy space, we recommend making a reservation now.
Don’t miss out on a celebration of good food, wine and company. Wherever you end up, you’re sure to have a great time celebrating France in the Lowcountry.
