Dine like a prince (or patriot) at Fish’s Bastille Day celebration

Can can dancers break it down at Fish’s annual Bastille Day celebration last year.

We like to celebrate other countries’ holidays in America. It’s kind of our thing. So even if you don’t speak French, or have any idea what Bastille Day is, that doesn’t mean you can’t partake in the festivities at Fish this week. But just so we’re all on the same page, the holiday, held on July 14, marks the first day of the French Revolution in 1789. Enough history lessons, though. Let’s talk food. The restaurant on Upper King Street is centered on French-meets-Lowcountry cuisine, so to celebrate the revolutionary spirit, patrons can choose to be treated as “princes” or “patriots” and each group is given a separate menu to choose from four French courses, drink specials and so on. You can also expect cake-eating and costume contests all set to traditional French music.

When: 5:30-10 p.m. Tuesday

Where: 442 King St., Charleston
