{Silent Sunday: Pistacia Vera}

Just down the street from Katzinger’s Deli, in the heart of the German Village area of Columbus, Ohio, lives Pistacia Vera, where flakey, buttery croissants, decadent Chocolate Bombes, and macarons that melt in your mouth grace the counter.

Disclaimer: This Silent Sunday is a part of a series of posts that I will be doing on restaurants, shops, distilleries and breweries in the Columbus, Ohio, area.  I was recently invited to take part in an all-expense paid tour of the city that was organized by Experience Columbus and Columbus Food Adventures.  The views on my blog are my own and in no way was I monetarily compensated for writing this entry.

    Their macarons are slightly bigger (which I LOVE) and the pricing is way cheaper (which I also LOVE) at 1.25 dollars a piece. Here in Houston they sell them like $2 .00 to 2.oo+ a piece, which I think is crazy. Thanks for sharing this!ReplyCancel
