1. Cure 5336 Butler St, Pittsburgh, PA 15201 (Upper Lawrenceville)

Chef Justin Severino presents a cure to your food ethics concerns at his hyper-local Mediterranean-leaning restaurant in Lawrenceville, where all of the meats come from ethically raised and butchered animals. True to the name, charcuterie is king here, and the epic salumi platter is reason enough to eat here. The rest of the menu is both meaty and thoughtful: beef tartare is spiked with pickled chili, oyster aioli, and black garlic; smoked lamb is tossed with ricotta cavatelli; and steak au poivre can be topped with foie gras. The stuffed boar heads overlooking Cure's country-casual dining room are almost as much of a red flag as the menu to any vegetarians who wander in.

2. Legume 214 N Craig St, Pittsburgh, PA 15213

What was once a tiny BYOB in Regent Square went big-league when Legume reopened in Oakland, bigger and better. The 90-seat space (roughly three times larger than the original) has a New American menu with French and European influences that changes daily, in true bistro fashion. Diners can expect meals that traditionally blend seasonal vegetables with meat and fish: slow-cooked veal shoulder is rosemary sprinkled with red Russian kale and roasted potatoes while braised monkfish gets served with cranberry beans and pea shoots. Sharing plates can serve as appetizers, or accompany your bar fix, with a country-style pate made with duck, prosciutto, and pistachio as a must-order.

3. Gaucho Parilla Argentina 1607 Penn Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15222 (Strip District)

This Latin American steak joint in the Strip District serves up five cuts of beef in their bright, al fresco eatery. The restaurant exclusively offers counter service -- chefs call out customer's names as they line wood-fired steak, chicken, and fish dishes (including a build-your-own-paella entree) onto the food bar, and hungry guests are expected to seat themselves after placing their orders. The entrees are best paired with a classic rice and beans plate, grilled corn on the cob, or an order of the famous Gaucho Parilla empanadas. The place has a lax BYOB policy, plenty of communal seating, and a private sub-ground event space called The Bodega.
