    La Coop: Bistro à Vins will live up to its French name this Bastille Day. On July 14, La Coop will bring the national French celebration to NuLu with a family-style meal. Chef Bobby Benjamin will add his signature Southern twist to traditional French dishes, filling the menu with items like niçoise salad with local tomatoes and farm egg; duck confit with seasonal vegetables; and sweet corn bisque with strawberry salsa. The shared plates menu will be offered from 5:30 to 10 p.m. at $40 per person, plus tax and gratuity.

    About Rebecca Ball

    As great lover of books and adventure, I grew up wanting to be anywhere else. I satiated some my wanderlust in the castles and expansive forests in Europe over the past few years. Now, I live in the city that will always be home with a cat who thinks she's a person.
