The unofficial dress code was tricolour as area Francophiles invaded Bastille Kitchen in Fort Point to celebrate Bastille Day. Owner Seth Greenberg cohosted the soiree, held in the restaurant’s lounge Chalet, along with Eric Jausseran, attache to the French Consulate in Boston. “The idea is to bring people together who have a love of art, a sense of fashion, a love of food and life,” said Jausseran. The party was remarkably well attended (considering a lot of folks are holed up on the Cape in July) and well heeled. Spotted in the crowd of blue, white, and red were: Edward “Woody” Maher Jr., Juan Carlos (in a sleek blue pair of Louis Vuitton shoes), Chynna Pope, Keith and Emiley Lockhart, and Antonio Pizzuti. “I’m a French wannabee,” said Pizzuti, who’s Italian. Retorted the ever-appropriate Jausseran: “They say Italians are French in a good mood.”
