Bastille Cafe & Bar information
French but not at all faux , Bastille could easily pass for a genuine Parisian bistro if it weren't for the surfeit of American accents. First there's the decor: beautiful white tiles juxtaposed with black wood, mirrors and chandeliers. Then there's the menu: moules (mussels), frites (real French fries), rabbit paté, oysters and steak (all sourced locally).
