It's Bastille Day today (which commemorates the start of the French Revolution, don'tcha know?) and, in honour of all things French, we've put together a little guide to the best French businesses in Brisbane— to help you decide where you can go to celebrate this, the chicest of all the French holidays.
Shop Up A Storm
Keen for some retail therapy? Turns out Brisbane is a treasure trove of French-inspired stores, delivering a plethora of beautiful French goodies. Who knew we were so chic?
Eat, Eat, Eat
Shopping makes you tired, so we suggest you do as the French do, and EAT. Happily, Brisbane has an excellent range of French restaurants and cafes to make sure your Bastille celebrations are suitably . . . well, French.
If breakfast is on the menu (when is it not?) why not swing by The Rogue Rennard, Pearl, or Hamptons Home Living, for some Francais-inspired cuisine—there's no better start to the day, in our opinion.
But it's dinner where we're really spoilt for choice. Aquitaine, Bistro Arlette, and Piaf are safe bets for great French fare, and if you want BYO, head to Deer Duck Bistro or Sprout. Or, you could try the just-opened-on-Friday, Lutece in Bardon.
So, there you have it, Urban Listers. Go forth and conquer this most fabulous of days, and if that means chowing down on pain au chocolats until tea time, well, that's ok with us.
