Alsace is a wonderful region in northeastern France. The confluence of German and French wine and cuisine. Beautiful gingerbread-style houses. I’ve been there once and would love to go again. But in case you are like me, longing to visit, or have yet to visit, you can experience the cuisine of Alsace at Bistro Pastis till the end of June. Here is their special menu for me and you.
