Pastiche Food & Drink
If you haven’t visited Pastiche since the re-model you’ve missed something wonderful!  After a hectic two week closure, Pastiche has re-opened to rave reviews not only for its outstanding food and drink but for its new look.  The transformation is remarkable. A beautiful stainless steel wrap around bar that seats 30, takes center stage.  With 4 wide screen televisions it’s the ideal place to cheer on your favorite sports team while enjoying one of 18 great artisan beers on tap, and some great items from the all new bar menu.  Chef Tim has added new dishes including Beer and Ancho braised Pork Osso Bucco to the regular menu along with gluten free options and much much more.  Check it all out at Pastiche now open daily from 11am to 11pm.   
3025 N Campbell Avenue.
