When Bastille Day arrives on July 14, celebrate the holiday with cassoulet, coq au vin, boeuf bourguignon and other traditional French dishes at French restaurants located near our Beacon apartments.

Bistro La Source, located at 85 Morris St, Jersey City which is eight minutes from your Beacon apartment, is a restaurant with a patio serving French fare such as steak frites and mussels, plus fixed-price meals.
