My best plates enjoyed in Pittsburgh in 2018.
The best meals I enjoyed while dining outside of Pittsburgh in 2018.
Saturday around noon, I went with my wife and met a friend at a place that I've been wanting to visit for quite a while. In the interest of pure transparency, I have to admit that Musa is owned and run by friends of ours, but anyone who knows me knows that I am honest … Continue reading 9-29-18 / Musa / Pittsburgh, PA (Beechview)
I started this write up over on Instagram (where I've been posting for the most part for the better part of a year) but I ran out of text space! I really should be utilizing the whole "article" concept of this site that I loved so much when I started this site, but Instagram is … Continue reading Spork Pit BBQ / August 23, 2018 / Garfield

On Wednesday, we met some friends for … Continue reading 9-27-17 / Huszar / Pittsburgh, PA (North Side)
Located only a 20 minute drive away from Pittsburgh, Cenacolo is an authentic, high-quality Italian restaurant focusing primarily on fresh, homemade pastas. I recently met some friends for an incredible meal and while we ordered quite a bit, the leftovers made for a wonderful reminder of the lovely meal we shared. An outstanding find just a … Continue reading 3-15-17 / Cenacolo / Irwin, PA
The Monday before Thanksgiving found my father, my wife and I on the hunt for some BBQ. It's astonishing how many restaurants are closed on Mondays. We found this out as we struck out at location after location (initially intending to head to Yinzburgh BBQ). Finally, I found in my notes a place that a … Continue reading Quick Bite 11-21-16 / Wiggy’s / Pittsburgh, PA
Later that week, I went with my family to The Abbey on Butler, a converted funeral parlor that is now a coffee bar, a bar, and a restaurant all in one. While it's a beautiful space and the service is excellent, I still feel like they have a couple of kinks to work out with … Continue reading Quick Bite 11-13-16 / The Abbey on Butler / Pittsburgh, PA
