Last night I was able to attend the official launch of French Restaurant Week at Gaby Brasserie Francaise at the Sofitel New York hotel. After a couple glasses of champagne, some brie and charcuterie, I was plunged deep into the world of French New York City. I realized – Oo la la! – there are many French events coming up, and I wanted to alert you of all the ways you can start your new life as a francophile.
Say bonjour to all these awesome French events starting this weekend!
Bastille Day is this Sunday the 12th from 12:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. running all the way across 60th street on the east side. Grab a crepe, enjoy the can-can dancers and enter to win a trip to Paris!
French Restaurant Week
From July 13 – 19, you can experience all the best French Restaurants in NYC for $17.89, $35.78 and/or $178.90. Reserve a spot on OpenTable.com.
Best of France
On September 26th and 27th, Times Square will EXPLODE with the fashion, gastronomy and beauty of France. Best of France is a major event that will have you speaking French in no time and yelling Vive la France! in the streets.
French Films on the Green are taking place all summer, and are sponsored by the French Embassy. Hit up the website and pick some fancy French flicks to enjoy in the warm weather.
