Taix Restaurant (which we finally, definitively know how to pronounce) is gearing up for a month of celebrations — now that July Fourth is over, it's time to get French.
July 14 is Bastille Day, France's Independence Day, and it's celebrated in that country in much the same way that we celebrate ours, with a lot of late-night revelry. But also soup! To that end, on July 14, Taix will serve bouillabaisse, the garlicky seafood soup that's native to the South of France. If you want to get in on that action, consider making a reservation.
And, throughout the month (until July 23), Taix will be showing the Tour de France on its many TVs. The annual, three-week bicycle race is the biggest event in the cycling universe, and Taix will be celebrating with $6 wine specials that correspond to the region the competitors are passing through — with Champagne on the last day of the race, which ends in Paris.
Wear a striped shirt and get into l'esprit.
