This July 14, we will celebrate the 231st anniversary of Bastille Day, which is the anniversary of the Storming of the Bastille in 1789, a turning point of the French Revolution. However, you don’t need to have even stepped on French soil to celebrate – instead, you can head to one of the many French eateries we have in our Beacon neighborhood.
If you’re looking to enjoy authentic French dishes such as coq au vin, cassoulet and boeuf bourguignon on Bastille Day, check out some of these French restaurants nearby for a meal that’ll make you feel like you’re dining in the heart of Paris.
Madame Claude Bis, located at 390 4th St, Jersey City which is five minutes from your Beacon apartment, is a cozy, dimly lit cafe with outdoor tables serving up French bistro items.
This typical Parisian bistro is owned by a French husband-and-wife team who have brought French specialties to Jersey City while still utilizing local produce. You’ll love their weekly jazz band, charming atmosphere and cocktail menu of French cordials.
Bistro La Source, located at 85 Morris St, Jersey City which is an eight minute drive from your Beacon apartment, is a restaurant with a patio serving French fare such as steak frites and mussels, plus fixed-price meals.
With over 25 years experience as a chef in some of Manhattan’s most prestigious restaurants, owner Bill Spitz takes great pride in the quality and presentation of each dish at Bistro La Source. Seasonal ingredients from local purveyor are always featured on the menu as well as hand-picked wine selections.
