Their yelp reviews seem to say otherwise. I've been to Left Bank many times and the food there is nothing to write home about..IF they even have it as they seem to run out of things fairly often. Vida is a great spot but the food is very similiar to Pastis- just different items. You do know the owner of Pastis is french but he tries to make the food somewhat user friendly since many americans are turned off or scared off by french food they dont recognize.
Pastis is a small french bistro and just because they are called Pastis does not mean they have anything to do with the Pastis in NY or any of the other Pastis' around the country. Its just a name related to a french liquer.
I will go to Pastis over Left Bank any day.
