  Pastis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Pastis is an anise-flavored liqueur and apéritif from France, typically containing 40-45% alcohol by volume, although there exist alcohol-free varieties.
Pastis is normally diluted with water before drinking (generally 5 volumes of water for 1 volume of pastis).
Although it is consumed throughout France, especially in the summer, pastis is generally associated with southeastern France, especially with the city of Marseille, and with the clichés of the Provençal lifestyle, like pétanque.

Like many of the main courses at Pastis, the plate arrives oven-hot, and that has a downside with this dish because the fish keeps cooking; by the time I dug down to it, it was a bit overcooked.
The best news about the Pastis menu, and one of the reasons the restaurant is often full, even on weeknights, is that nearly all the appetizers and most of the main courses are available, with the restaurant's wonderful, homemade desserts and coffee, for a package price of just $24.50.
