Pittsburgh Restaurants

Recommended Posts

I did search and all of the threads seem to be really old.  Mr. Kim and a friend are headed to Pittsburgh this weekend to attend a Steelers preseason game.  They will need dinner Friday night, breakfast, lunch and a quick dinner perhaps on Saturday and breakfast on Sunday.  Mr. Kim likes everything, but his friend is really more of a meat and potatoes guy.  He likes American versions of Mexican and Italian and that's about it.  The last time they went, they tried Primanti's and didn't care for it.  Any suggestions would be wonderful. Thanks so much!

Where are they staying?  Do they have a car or are they willing to Uber?
Without any of that:
Breakfast

DeLuca's, Pamela's or Cafe Raymond in the Strip District.  I'd pick Cafe Raymond over the other 2

Dorstop diner in Dormont
Jean Marc Chatellier French Bakery in Millvale
Lunch
DiAnoia's

Piccolo Forno
Gaucho
Federal Gallery
Dinner
Any of the lunch places
Morcilla
Apteka
Butcher and Rye

I can give more specific recommendations or feel free to ask more specific questions

If they want a great burger (and I almost never seek out a burger in my travels) Tessaro's is the place to go.  Nothing fancy, just an old neighborhood tavern, but I return again and again when I am in Pittsburgh.
