Atlanta restaurant 'throws the key' for French festival

- It’s called the Fêtes De Bayonne, and it’s the largest festival every year in France.  And this year, an Atlanta restaurant is bringing a “taste” of the party right here to North Georgia, with a special celebration of food, drinks, and entertainment.

Cooks & Soldiers is hosting is very own Fêtes De Bayonne on Sunday, July 30 from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m., marking the annual French tradition with a special menu inspired by the event as well as music and entertainment.  The festival is actually a 5-day affair in Bayonne, which begins when the mayor there throws a key to the city into the crowd of revelers.  Cooks & Soldiers will also start the party with a “key throwing,” and will continue with a specialty menu including a “King Leo” salad, bell pepper omelets, and a dessert called milleifeuille, which is a layered pastry also known as a Napolean.  The restaurant will also be providing traditional red kerchiefs, which patrons can wear in honor of the red-and-white theme of the Fêtes De Bayonne.

Good Day Atlanta’s Paul Milliken is never one to miss a party, and spend the morning at Cooks & Soldiers getting a preview of this special event.
