They liked it so much they’re doing it again. “They” would be the folks at Pistache French Bistro (101 N. Clematis St., 561/833-5090) in downtown WPB. “It” would be the “Tour du Monde,” a four-month-long culinary journey that has the restaurant taking diners from Russia to Morocco to Spain and more. The journey consists of nine dinners—each featuring a different country’s cuisine—spread out from May to September. Get your “passport” stamped at seven of them and you’ll be eligible for a trip to Paris. The Tour kicks off on Friday, May 31, with the restaurant’s fifth anniversary party, plus food, champagne specials and live music.
