These new french fries at Pistache look yummy


Pistache, the stylish French bistro on Clematis Street in downtown West Palm Beach, is putting its brand new, zinc-top bar to tasty use.

The popular eatery has rolled out a new “Frite Sheet” bar menu of gilded French fry offerings. And by gilded, we don’t mean goopy processed cheese. That’s not how Pistache chef de cuisine Isaac Cerny rolls.

His lavish take on loaded pomme frites (French fries) involves French culinary techniques. Imagine a frites combo that’s crowned with seared foie gras, toasted pistachios and a cherry gastrique (a kind of caramelized sweet and sour sauce). Such a dish is the bar’s featured combo.

But bar-goers are invited to build their own frite combo. Toppings include smoked paprika aioli, au poivre, sherry vinegar, harissa cream, black truffle and roasted garlic and others.

The Frite Sheet menu is available from 8 p.m. to closing as the new bar’s “late night” offering. For the pairing, the bar unveiled a menu of new specialty cocktails with names like London Calling, La Louche, South Slope, and May Daisy.

And, yes, they look pretty snazzy in the LED glow of the new bar top. But isn’t that the point?
