Last year I wrote enthusiastically about my visit to Chef Symon's Lola in Cleveland, and so ever since it was announced that Bar Symon would be coming to the Pittsburgh International Airport, I had been looking forward to paying a visit. ∙...―
We met up for dinner with some friends who live in Greensburg and they suggested Zozo's Pub. Despite its name, and the connotation that comes with "pub food," Zozo's Pub is really much more than "just a pub." ∙ First off, Zozo's Pub has a...―
I love salads, but I never like the salads I make at home because they are generally too bland and too boring. Anything that would taste good in my books would require too much ingredient prep on my part. (Go ahead, call me lazy.) ∙ As ...―
The first time I heard of Szmidt's Old World Deli, I was at a work party and someone had brought along some of Szmidt's pierogies - two sweet varieties and a savory kind. It made such a positive impression on me that when R. was looking for a ...―
I had been pretty excited about Station Street Hot Dogs since the day it reopened under the new ownership of the Sousa brothers. A good friend I will lovingly refer to as "Hot Dog Fiend" and I had been talking about going for ages, and we finally...―

I had called Shadyside home during my first month in Pittsburgh. Every morning, I would walk over to X Shadyside on Walnut Street and get my work out in before heading in to work. Although only a year has passed, a lot has changed at X ...―
Square Cafe in Regent Square is one of the places I've heard people rave about but never had a chance to visit, partly because Regent Square isn't a neighborhood I happen to frequent (this was in fact my very first visit) and because my usual ...―
I have previously raved about the locavore frank at Franktuary, but the location and hours of the shop aren't exactly the most convenient for me. Luckily, to get my locavore frank fix, Franktuary has a truck that roams about town serving a ...―
I made two visits to the new Pino Gelato in Cranberry over the weekend when I realized I had coupons for it that were about to expire. I do preface this post by saying that I rarely eat gelato; as I've mentioned before I'm a huge ice cream snob, ...―
