Bonjour Bastille!

The Party
Chefs Christophe and Michelle Poteaux welcomed fans of their family-owned restaurant, Bastille, to its new, larger location in Alexandria, Va., with a party featuring plenty of French flair.

The People
Alexandria Mayor William Euille was one of 200 guests who got a first glimpse at the Old Town location, which was designed to convey a modern twist to the classic French cafe experience.
