EaterWire: Balshstille Day and Bastille Day

MELROSE: This is what restaurant family is all about. Billy Walsh, a cook at Craft and a waiter at Osteria Latini, was heading to work on his Vespa in May and got hit by a car. He suffered some serious injuries (collapsed lung, bleeding in the brain, fractured ribs, lacerations) but, as a new hire, didn't have health insurance when the accident occurred. It's a well-known fact many restaurant hospitality workers don't have insurance, so some of LA's food and beverage elite are joining forces to hold a fundraiser for Billy on Monday, July 14. Eric Greenspan and The Foundry on Melrose will host, chefs from Craft and Providence will help with the food, and bartenders extraordinaire from The Doheny, Malo, Osteria Mozza, Comme Ca, The Edison and Gordon Ramsay will be on hand mixing drinks. (Ok, we called a moratorium on mixology, but these are maybe the only people who get a reprieve.) Tickets are $40 per person, which includes dinner, dessert and one drink (after that it's cash bar only); purchase at the door, cash only. Starts at 7pm. [EaterWire]

WEST HOLLYWOOD: In honor of Bastille Day, Comme Ca will have a special $48 three-course menu on Monday, July 14. Some options include fresh melon soup with crab and creme fraiche, braised lamb shank and cherry clafoutis. [EaterWire]

SANTA MONICA: Josiah Citrin and Melisse will have a Bastille Day dinner to benefit Careers Through Culinary Arts Program (C-CAP). Some of the students and graduats will help Citrin with things like vichysoise, beouf Bourgouignon and tarte tatin. Monday, July 14; $130 per person. [EaterWire]

CENTURY CITY: Jean Francois Meteigner will host an $85 prix fixe from 6pm-9:30pm at La Cachette on Monday, July 14. "Live accordian music and French spirit" included. [EaterWire]

WEST HOLLYWOOD: And if you want something more celebratory and outdoors, the sixth annual Bastille Day Los Angeles celebration takes place at the West Hollywood Park (across from the BDC on San Vicente) on Sunday, July 13. There's tons of food, music, petanque and plenty of accents. There's an after party at Ultra Suede. (12pm-10pm; $5 for adults, kids are free) [EaterWire]
