    A special Tour de France menu runs at Pinot Bistro from July 3-25, 2010.

    Still waiting for that culinary World Cup-Tour de France mash-up.

    Someone, somewhere, we hope, will whip up a banquet that includes regional specialties representing the teams in the World Cup semi-finals, as well as the homelands of the leaders in le ultimate bicycle race.

    But for now, for this one week when both events share time-and-mind space, we are happy to enjoy both however we can get them. Our Tour de France tasting spot will be Pinot Bistro, which is serving a race-saluting menu, as it has done in years past.

    The courses include macaroons, croquettes, a potato-chive fondue, escargot gratin. And many, many other savories. Prices is $45 -- $65 with le wine -- and runs through July 25.

    Pinot Bistro is located in Studio City. The Tour de France is located at various points around France. Potato-chive fondue is forever located in our fondest foodie wishes.
