Hope my readers are hungry because this post is going to be tasty! Pittsburgh Restaurant Week kicks off today with over 80 restaurants across the city and beyond participating. Meat & Potatoes, Ruth Chris’s Steak House, Grit & Grace, Bigham Tavern, Matteo’s and tako; just to name a few! If you’ve never dined during restaurant week, you are missing out on delicious food for an even more delicious price. Participating restaurants (full list here) offer specialty items or a 3-course menu ranging from $20.15-30.15, Monday-Sunday.
I was lucky enough to attend the annual kickoff party on Thursday at the Nation Aviary thanks to Director Brian McCollum. Sixteen restaurants passed preview dishes to get guests mouths watering for the week to come. The winner, Pan Asian Kitchen in Lawrenceville, served up a Lobster Monkey Roll and a Kuro Buta Belly. After “dinner”, we made our way out to the rose garden for a performance by Nameless in August.
What restaurant are you eager to try this week?
