July 14, 2010 - Austin's Artisan Bistro Presents Bastille Day Celebration

Experience French Food, Music, and Culture in the Heart of Lakeway

Mention Independence Day to a typical Texan, and he’ll imagine fireworks, beers, and barbecue—but not Cesidio d’Andrea. To this transplanted French chef, now an Austinite, Independence Day means Bastille Day: traditional French food, music, and celebrations. That’s why he’s decided to throw a special Bastille Day party at his Lakeway restaurant, Artisan Bistro: to show the people of Austin a different kind of Independence Day.

Artisan, a French bistro, wine bar and bakery located at 900 Ranch Road 620S in Lakeway, will present a Bastille Day extravaganza on Wednesday, July 14, from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The Celebration will include live music, dancing, games (such as pétanque, a bocce-like lawn bowling game), food, wine, and setups from local vendors. Chef d’Andrea will present French cooking demos, and Artisan wine buyer Mike Bryan will hold a France vs. Texas wine tasting. The Bastille Day Celebration is open to Francophiles of all ages.

"People in France come together for Bastille Day in much the same way we do here for the Fourth of July—there are parades, parties, and festivals, and people eat, drink, and celebrate," d’Andrea says. "We want to share that spirit with the people of Austin."
