This posh downtown restaurant, steps from Market Square, is making an eclectic mix of American cuisine spanning the full 50 states: from Hawaiian sweet breads, to barbecue short ribs, to country pate, to sun-shrimp and grits. The cocktail menu draws inspiration from our fair city with beverages like the Sunrise on the Square and the Pittsburgh Stock Exchange.
As the name suggests, the kitchen at this unpretentious restaurant in Troy Hill takes a from-scratch approach. Hearty meals -- burgers, pot roast, halušky, even “Rust Belt” charcuterie -- are on the menu. Cocktails are both creative (the “On a Scale from Britney to Miley” cocktail, for one) and reasonably priced ($5 gimlets).
