GREENWICH, Conn. -- The Alliance Française's La Table Française is holding a traditional La Galette des Rois dinner at Bistro Versailles in Greenwich on Thursday.

This French tradition of serving a frangipane-filled tart known as the 'galette des rois' dates back to the 14th century. The festival takes place around Epiphany, the twelfth day of Christmas, when the Three Wise Men visited baby Jesus. According to tradition, the 'galette des rois', was to "draw the kings" to the Epiphany.

Here is the menu for the traditional meal: Spinach and white bean soup; Pâté de campagne; organic greens; cornichons and toasted baguette; cast-iron seared filet of red snapper; roasted potatoes; wilted spinach; Provencal tomato sauce or Duck leg confit; green lentils and haricots verts Sauce à l’ orange or Mini Pork Tenderloin Roasted; creamy mashed potatoes, Brussel sprouts and mustard sauce; and Galette des Rois.

To RSVP, email

The event begins at 7:30 p.m.

Bistro Versailles is at 339 Greenwich Ave, Greenwich.
