Eat, See, & Do: Pittsburgh

Once the center of the American steel industry, Pittsburgh has grounded itself as a humble town with burgeoning flair. Trending eateries, exciting museums, and growing neighborhoods all complement its unshakeable identity.

Whether you’re thinking about calling Pittsburgh home or are simply passing through, add these things to eat, see, and do to your itinerary!

EAT:

almond croissant

According to af&co, a restaurant and hospitality consulting firm, Pittsburgh has earned its status as the Top American Food City for 2019. A booming tech scene, proximity to farms, and rich history and culture have found a recent representation in its food. You can see and taste for yourself at one of the city’s many renowned eateries. For a truly French experience in Pittsburgh, head to the famed La Gourmandine. The owners, Fabien and Lisanne Moreau, were both born and raised in France, and with them brought their knack for producing exquisite pastries. We recommend an order of their almond croissants paired with an expertly-crafted cafe au lait. For a heartier dining experience, pull up a seat Josza Corner, a comforting haven that serves up Hungarian specialties. Treat yourself to chicken paprikas, sausage, cucumber salad, and don’t forget an order of lángos, a traditional Hungarian fried bread.

Your inner child will squeal in delight upon a visit to the Heinz Museum’s most talked-about exhibition. Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood offers visitors the chance to check out the original set and items from America’s favorite children’s show that ran from 1968 until 2001. Meander through the entryway, look up at the great oak tree, and marvel at McFeely’s “Speedy Delivery” tricycle in person.

DO:

beer cheers

For a day of strolling, shopping, dining, and people watching, head to Market Square. This gathering spot in Downtown Pittsburgh plays host to holiday markets and features pop-up events and art displays throughout the year. If you prefer cozy seating, comfort food, and craft beer, make your way to Row House Cinema, a Lawrenceville staple. Row House is not your average theater, as it selects cinematic treasures, young and old, and presents them via weekly themes. Concepts have included stop-motion animation, Luc Godard, Sci-Fi, and Denzel Washington flicks. Moviegoers can visit Bierport before the show and peruse through hundreds of bottles to find the perfect beverage to enjoy during the movie.
