From Friday, July 10 – Tuesday, July 14, all Mon Ami Gabi locations invite you to experience four limited-time specials, exclusive to the holiday. Here’s a taste of how you can celebrate Bastille Day at Mon Ami Gabi!

Mon Ami Gabi Chilled Gazpacho

Cool down with the Chilled Gazpacho served with fresh avocado and basil oil.

Next on the special menu are Crispy Frog Legs with homemade spaetzle dumplings. It’s perhaps one of the best-known French dishes, and got its start when Catholic monks were ordered to stop eating meat on certain days. The peasants followed their lead, and the rest is history! The chefs at Mon Ami Gabi add parsley jus and sweet garlic purée to brighten the taste.

Seafood bouillabaisse from Mon Ami Gabi

Also returning for Bastille Day is the Classic Seafood Bouillabaisse, a traditional fish stew from the Provence coastal region. It comes packed with shrimp, scallop, salmon, cod and more, but the secret to Mon Ami Gabi’s version is an earthy saffron rouille.

Profiteroles Mon Ami Gabi

Finally, while you might not have the fireworks and parades, you can still enjoy the red, white and blue with Tri-Color Profiteroles. You’ll find vanilla and strawberry ice cream, plus blueberry sorbet sandwiched in between classic, flaky Choux pastry puffs. Pro Tip: They pair perfectly with sparkling rosé champagne from Mon Ami Gabi’s signature wine cart!
