Wine at Mon Ai Gabi/Credit: Mon Ami GabiTuesday is Bastille Day! Or you may call it La Fête Nationale. Either way, it commemorates the start of the French Revolution with the storming of the Bastille on July 14, 1789.

9Mon Ami Gabi at Reston Town Center is marking the occasion with special Bastille Day-inspired dishes through Wednesday, July 15.

On the menu: Chilled Smoky Heirloom Tomato Soup with crunchy Gruyère toasts; Grilled Chicken Salad with ratatouille and arugula; Seared Bass Over Roasted Tomato; Roasted Fennel & Saffron with Rouille; and Raspberry & Lemon Sorbet for dessert.

Regular menu is also available, as if, of course, Champagne.

    Bastille Day, Canada Day, and Cinco de Mayo.. Why don’t we add a celebration of Nationaler Arbeit Feirtag es duestchen Volkes…. That would fit right in with Reston’s National Socialistic views…
