Bastille Cafe & Bar | 5307 Ballard Avenue NW | 206-453-5014
As an authentic French eatery, it’s no surprise that Bastille excels with their Steak Frites! It’s drizzled with a delicious bordelaise, which is a classic French sauce for a classic French dish such as Steak Frites. It also has a dollop of sauce vert, and is served with pommes frites (the fancy French term for potato fries).
