Bastille Day

Crêpes have swiftly become one of our favourite foods. Ever since visiting Paris, we've been eager to find the best spot in Dublin to devour the French treat and we've finally found THE place.

Voici in Rathmines has answered our prayers with their heavenly menus and we are most definitely visiting them on Bastille Day.

Authentic French eatery, Voici, celebrates things Crêpe and Galette all year round. Marking Bastille Day, this July 14, these Master Crêpeieres are sharing their tips, trivia and experience of this French national staple.  

The team at Voici Wine Bar & Crêperie explain that a galette is a savoury crêpe made with buckwheat flour (Farine de Sarrasin), whereas sweet crêpes are made using white organic flour!

Sourcing their buckwheat flour from the Moulin de la Fatigue in Brittany France – the birth place of the galette. This flour is milled with a traditional flint millstone, the same process since 1870. So you’re guaranteed a traditional French experience.

Modern variations on the traditional sweet Crêpe include “Crêpe Caramélisée” served with handcrafted Atlantic Sea Salted Caramel Gelato topped with fresh whipped cream, flaked almonds and homemade caramel au beurre salé.

Or to add “wow” factor to your day go for the “Crêpe Suzette” – freshly squeezed orange and lemon, melted butter, sugar and flambéed with Grand Marnier.

U2 frontman Bono found himself in a worrying position on Thursday night as he reportedly had to be rescued by armed French police from a Nice restaurant. 

According to The Mirror, the Dublin rocker was on the seafront terrace of La Petite Maison in the French city when Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel drove a truck into the Bastille Day crowd killing 84 people.

The Daily Mail has reported that staff in the up-market venue pulled down the shutters when they realised what was happening and told everyone to hide until the all clear was given.

Bono and the restaurant's other diners were said to have been “gripped by fear” as the events unfolded and were later rescued by armed antiterrorist police who led the group to the nearby Massena square.

Restaurant owner Anne-Laure Rubi told a French magazine: “Suddenly I saw people running, without shouting.”

“It was a silent panic – it was extraordinary.”

A diner at the venue said: “It took around half an hour for the police to get us out.”

“Like everybody else, Bono had to put his hands on his head and was told to remain calm.”

On Friday U2 posted a picture of The Edge from their official Twitter account with the caption: “Love is bigger than anything in its way – Bono, Edge, Adam, Larry.”

This is the second time Bono has been close to a major terrorist attack in France as last November he was rehearsing with his U2 bandmates in Paris when 89 people were killed in the nearby Bataclan theatre.
