For the 10th year, Jackson’s Steakhouse is proud to once again present a wine and food tasting, “Vive la France,” on Sunday, July 14, at 5:30 p.m.

Bastille Day is the French national holiday, la Fête du 14 juillet. It commemorates the storming of the Bastille prison in 1789, an act that led to the conclusion of the French Revolution and the beginning of French independence.

With Bastille Day serving as the inspiration for the tasting, our own Jean Pierre N’Dione has hand selected four stellar French wines to complement a selection of classic French dishes as prepared by Chef Irv Miller. The featured presentation for the evening is as follows:


Ratatouille tartine featuring crusty French bread, goat cheese spread, ratatouille relis, garlic, onions, bell pepper, zucchini, tomatoes, olive oil, fried eggplant, and crispy basil paired with
