A Pistachio by any other name – Pistacia Vera, still as sweet

Posted by cmh gourmand on September 13, 2007

Pistacia Vera

541 South Third St.

German Village

One of the first blog entries I created was about Pistachio – a cool little sweet kitchen in the Short North. I stumbled in on a day when I needed something sweet to happen – and so it did. Now, about a year later, they have changed their name and moved…but the relationship continues :>. Pistacia Vera opened on September 4th which turned into a very busy Tuesday.

All of the goodies remain – pastries, cookies, confections, truffles, tarts, tortes and more. My favorite are the macarons – in particular pistachio and pecan. These half dollar sized cookies offer perfection for $1.

The new location has a lot of history to it, with the original building in place since the 1880’s. Pistachia’s space has some great design features and natural lighting. The staff are a pleasure to interact with. Pistachia Vera is well placed for a perfect weekend morning in German Village, it is located within easy walking distance of the Book Loft and Katzinger’s Deli.

I also learned something on my latest trip. Since Pistacia uses the finest ingredients and no preservatives – they advise that all desserts be consumed within three days of purchase. In my case, I am struggling not to eat all of them within three minutes.
