Meat and Potatoes, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Photo from
Surprisingly, Pittsburgh is turning into one of my frequently visited cities. Good thing they have a burgeoning food scene that goes beyond the Primanti Brothers stereotype of food in Pittsburgh. Meat and Potatoes (the restaurant) is becoming one of my standbys.

Meat and Potatoes is attached to the lobby of a theater downtown, so it's really active on show nights. Pretty loud, dark and generally buzzing.

It goes without saying that you probably shouldn't be a vegetarian if you're coming here. But you're not required to eat a big steak. While they have a good selection of cuts on the menu, our groups have generally stuck to the appetizers and snacks menu.

Some of the features:
Barrel Aged Manhattan


Fried Brussels Sprouts

The Salty Pig Flatbread

Fried Chicken Livers
They also have Devils on Horseback and Fried Pickles! The menu is an update of old school cocktail party/dinner party food, I think.

Good selection of "mixologist" type drinks, ranging from classics to cocktails inspired by classics.

21st century cocktail scene inspired by the classics.
