Where can I get a decent bottle of pastis in the bay, preferably around Palo Alto/Menlo Park? BevMo didn't have it, and that's about the extent of my knowledge when it comes to alcohol.

Best answer: Beltramos in Menlo Park.

Best answer: 2nd Beltramo's, I've gotten Ricard there before. I'm surprised you didn't find it at BevMo, though (the one in Mountain View?), because I'm certain I've picked some up there before too.

We may be the only two pastis drinkers in the area. Well met!

Best answer: @crinklebat: No, there's at least one more. And I'm pretty sure I got mine at Beltramo's, too.

Make that four.... You can get Ricard and sometimes Pernod at Draeger's in Los Altos. K&L in SF has had both every time I have gone, too.

Response by poster: Awesome, I'll swing by today. Good to know that there are other pastis drinkers around. Maybe we can have a proven├žal-themed peninsula meetup one of these days.

Response by poster: Beltramo's had both pastis and arak (and choices of both), and has now become my favorite store within 50 miles. Cheers.
