Bastille Day?

I understand that Provence is not going to do their street boules festivities this year, and as a restaurant, they're lacking right now. I'm looking for a place in Manhattan or Brooklyn to take some friends for a delicious, comfortable, genuine French dinner to celebrate le quatorze juillet. Any recommendations, please?

The food is inconsistent, but I find the Bastille Day street festival put on by the Alliance Francaise, on 60th St. between 5th and Park or Lexington to be fun.

Bar Tabac on Smith St. had a huge petanque tournament last year, they block off part of Smith St. and cover it in sand, teams from around the world compete -fun stuff!

according to their website, they are doing it again this year

It's happening this year (as opposed to other years in the past when they haven't put it on) but it's on Sunday.

Don't they always put it on on the Sunday following Bastille Day (if 14 juillet comes during the week)? Which years did they not run it at all?
