Alsatian dishes take you traveling

While most of us are grounded and missing our travel lives, we can take a small trip through special dishes and food events. Hey, it’s what we’ve got and if eating is part of the deal, count me in!

Pistache French Bistro celebrates “A Night in Alsace,” starting at 5:30 p.m. on Jan. 21 with a special three-course dinner that includes Flammekueche (Alsatian flatbread), choucroute garnie (bratwurst, smoked pork loin, braised pork shoulder) and Alsatian kougelhopf (brioche cake). These will be a la carte choices, and the regular menu is available. Trimbach wines are featured by bottle or glass to pair with the dishes.

Pistache French Bistro, 101 N. Clematis St., West Palm Beach; 561/833-5090.
