All five locations of the Bristol Bar and Grille  will be honoring Bastille Day, the French national holiday, this year. The location in Jeffersonville, Indiana will offer a special selection of French food and wine from Friday, July 11 through Sunday, August 24. Chef Richard Doering created a specialty menu only available at this location.
During this six week period, all Bristol locations will feature a distinct list of French wines to be paired with their meals. Master Sommelier  Scott Harper personally selected each wine, and it will be sold by the glass, bottle, or flight . These specials will be offered along with the regular menu from 5:00 p.m. until close.
The Jeffersonville Bristol will also host a wine tasting event on Thursday, July 17 at 6:30 p.m. Harper will lead the event as the attendees explore five tasting pours of hand-picked wines. The cost is $20 per person, and all attendees are encouraged to stay afterwards for the dinner special. To reserve a place at this wine tasting, call (812) 218-1995.
