La Fête nationale du Québec

WHAT: The Beehive Restaurant located in Boston’s trendy South End is at it again with its latest celebration “La Fête nationale du Québec” or “Quebec National Day” featuring an evening of inspired food and live performance from award-winning singer-songwriters Isabelle Cyr and Yves Marchand on Monday, June 24th, 2013. In partnership with the Quebec Delegation of Boston and Svedka Vodka, The Beehive will be decked out representing our friends to the north in proper fashion as Cyr and Marchand perform original, well-known and traditional pieces from their Quebec and Acadian repertoire from 8:00PM to 12:00AM.
Highlighting the true friendliness of Quebec and its people, dinner will kick off at 5:00PM with a La Fête nationale du Québec specials menu in addition to The Beehive’s regular fare. The evening’s food will feature traditional Quebec fare such as: Smoked Trout Cakes with Horseradish & Cucumber Salad ($12), Foie Gras & Maple Crème Brulée ($14), Brome Lake Duck Breast Au Poivre with Sweet Potato Fries ($27), Québec style Lobster Spaghetti ($32), and Bleu berries pie with Maple syrup ice cream ($8).
In the mood for some Quebec cocktails (and who isn’t?) why not try some of The Beehive’s fun featured cocktails for the evening such as the "Caribou de Ville” ($11.50) blending together red wine, American Honey Wild Turkey splashes of maple syrup, served on the rocks with a cinnamon stick, or the "Quebec Urbain" ($11.50) made with Svedka Clementie, blood orange juice and muddled fresh mint served on the rocks.
