At some point in the past of the Dreamscape there were two brothers. Both dreams of course. They were dreams of far away places where you enjoy the fruits and pleasures of those lands. Where you enjoy the company of natives and they you. When these dreams decided to leave the place of their birth and join us all here in the real world it was not long before the brothers were united again. One brother, Traveling Bistro the other Nomad Bar. Just the names say it all. One a way station for those who wander but are not lost. The other a connoisseur of the flavors of far flung places. The nomad, the traveler. While many have enjoyed the weekly partnership between the two each Sunday they are bringing a new special event monthly starting in July. Traveling Bistro and Nomad Bar will be pairing dinner and drinks of the regions of the world. Who’s up first? Well France of course! Check out the Menu.
