Through the walled windows above us, we caught a glimpse of the area’s finest chefs salting, sautéing and styling thousands of delicious samples.
It was Pittsburgh Magazine’s Best Restaurants Party – an evolving mecca-of-sorts for the food-fanatics and socialites of Pittsburgh proper. PID, a few FORTs and I were among them, armed with anxious appetites.
We ate as much as we humanly could (PID made it farther than us all…). Some Amuse-bouches were amazing, and some left us bemused. But one thing was certain: the culinary creativity in this town is bursting at the seams. We have a few highlights from the evening to share with you all. Bon Appetite…
