Sad that the Fourth of July is over? Well, there's still one more chance to celebrate freedom and independence this year — just for a different country. Bastille Day is the anniversary of the storming of the Bastille in Paris, which happened in 1789 and marked the beginning of the French Revolution and the end of the monarchy in France. To celebrate La Fête Nationale, Fish Restaurant is hosting a Bastille Day party. "It's a super fun event," says Angel Powell, director of public relations for Patrick Properties. "Our chef, Nico Romo, is French, and to celebrate his Frenchness, we started doing this three years ago."
They will have French wines and beers, specialty cocktails, a pommes frites "guillotine" station, a crêpe station, live French music, can-can dancers from the Charleston Ballet Theatre, and more. Chef Nico Romo has created a three-course French menu, which guests can add wine pairings to. They will also be holding a costume contest where people are invited to dress as their favorite French playwright, singer, or intellectual. Winners receive a dinner for two at Fish.
