The 99th annual Tour de France bicycle race is underway, and Brasserie JO, located at the Colonnade hotel on Huntington Avenue in Boston, celebrates French cuisine with the creations of executive chef Nicholas Calias, inspired by each region of France the fabled bike race passes through. During the race, Brasserie JO televisions will be tuned to the race. The Tour de France is run in stages, and Calias's menu items are as well, such as the Stage 5 offering July 7-9 of eggs Meurette (poached eggs with red-wine sauce, it's so rich, so French and so good), crispy pork belly and brioche. For reservations, book at www.brasseriejo.com or call 617-425-3240.

Patrons can also enter a raffle to win a $1,500 racing bike (no purchase necessary). After the eggs Meurette, a little bike exercise wouldn't be a bad idea.
