Feast like the French on Bastille Day at Balzac Brasserie & Bar
The true charm of France’s Bastille Day – the national celebration of the French Revolution, is eating a lovely meal. If you aren’t able to fly to the land of Bordeaux, foie gras and pain au chocolat, the next best way to celebrate is with French food closer to home.
Balzac Brasserie & Bar, the French bistro at Rendezvous Gallery, is celebrating Bastille Day a day earlier on Sunday, 13th July 2014 with a special Bastille Day Brunch menu featuring a semi buffet, main course, dessert or cheese course. Whether you’re a French national or otherwise, Bastille Day Brunch at Balzac Brasserie promises to be a day of great food and fun for all diners, alike. Vive la France!
Begin the feast with a quintessential French dish, an amuse bouche of an Egg Cocotte with Crème Fraîche and Emmental Cheese – a teaser to the multitude of flavours that follow. With four ‘live’ counters set up around the restaurant, you are in for a treat of free-flow French appetiser favourites. They include the wholesome Roasted Tomato Soup with sweet onion and tarragon pesto to whet the appetite, freshly-shucked quality Fine de Claire French Oysters served with lemon, red wine and shallot vinegar, in-house Smoked Salmon served with Darphin potato, crème fraîche and lemon, as well as Terrine Du Chef Dubois – homemade Pate of Kurobuta Pork and Foie Gras served with petite salad.
For the main course, three choices await. For those who prefer sharing, there is the Cocotte De Moule Francaise À La Normande et Frites Maison – the French Mussel Normandy-style ‘Cream and Bacon’ served with Balzac French Fries. This communal favourite comes in serving sizes for two or four persons.
Diners who enjoy a good piece of steamed fish would take delight in the Steamed and Lightly Smoked Tasmanian Trout with French Lentils du Puy and Vegetable, while meat lovers can indulge in the juicy Bavette De Bouef Angus Sauce Poivre – Angust Beef Flank with classic Pepper Sauce and Charlotte Potato Gratin. The meal ends with a choice of dessert or the much-loved French cheese: classical French Tarte Tatin – Apple Tart served with Vanilla Ice Cream or Camenbert Affine – Camembert with Walnut Salad.
Priced at $98++ per person, the Bastille Day Sunday Brunch will be held on Sunday, 13th July 2014, from 11am to 3pm.
