If it's been a while since you've been to Pastiche Wine Bar, it may be time for another visit. In addition to its ample wine selection, the place has transformed into a full service restaurant and cocktail lounge with delectable new food options and events.
Pastiche is quite the classy neighborhood spot, with warm décor and a cozy atmosphere. I recently had the pleasure of enjoying some of their wines, food, cocktails and more wine all while "Piano Man" Ron Mills played in the background. Not a bad Friday night, if you ask me.
Co-owners Linda Gair and Art Britton have created a concise menu of slow-cooked favorites such as braised short ribs ($20) and braised lamb shanks ($24). Their bar menu features items like fried vegetables ($6) and potato frites ($6).
