Celebrate Beaujolais Nouveau at Bastille Café & Bar

“Le Beaujolais nouveau est arrive” on Thursday, November 16th

Join us at Bastille Café & Bar between 5pm - 10pm for flights of wine and small plates, or dinner and bottles of Cru Beaujolais!

For many decades, just past midnight on the third Thursday in each November, little villages all over the Beaujolais region in eastern France have come to life, hustling to get their many cases of Beaujolais Nouveau to Paris for the annual celebration of the young wine.

Seattleites can join in on the celebration at Bastille Café & Bar where popping bottles of Beaujolais Nouveau has become an annual tradition since the Ballard Avenue restaurant opened in 2009.

Chef Jason Stoneburner has put together an accompanying small plates menu including

Confit Rabbit Tartines
Pickled Vegetables / Stout Mustard $15

Wagyu Beef Tartare
Salt & Vinegar Chips $17

Tartiflette Croustillante
Potato, Bacon & Cheese Crisp $13
