Meal for Bastille Day, help me brainstorm!

Hi guys! I'm looking to cook a French feast for Bastille Day and am brainstorming about dishes. Unfortunately, since I'm away from my home kitchen and sans cookbooks, my list is coming up pretty short. I'll be making french onion soup as an appetizer and probably serving pear clafoutis for dessert. I'm going for pretty traditional, i.e. fairly recognizable as French to most people. Here's what I've come up with so far as possible meals:
boeuf bourguignon
quiche (lorraine or otherwise)
coq au vin
cassoulet (probably a little too labor intensive)
tarte tatin
I know there's loads more stuff, I'm just drawing a complete blank! What's your fave French meal?
