Sunday dinners will feature Bastille’s April in Paris menu, which celebrates the diverse peoples and cultures of France. A large selection of a la carte dishes are available as well as a three-course or four-course bistro menu ($39 and $49 respectively). For more than a millennium of France’s modern history, the country has been a land of immigration. From the Romans, Franks, Goths, Vikings, Moors… to the more recent integration of people from the former French Colonial Empire (Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, Sub-Sahel Africa, Lebanon, Indochina, Caribbean and Pacific Islands) and the current European Union countries, France has benefited of this rich melting pot of populations and cultures.
