Bigham Tavern – Brunch

Go Bigham or Go Home. I definitely did not want to go home from this local Mount Washington joint. If you're looking for a good brunch spot with tasty drinks and lively vibes to cure a hangover on a Saturday or Sunday, then Bigham Tavern should be your go-to. ~~~ Naturally, I was nursing a hangover … Continue reading Bigham Tavern – Brunch

M3 – May

This month in M3 (Mercato’s Meatball of the Month), they decided to make a pepperoni pizza ball with a zesty pizza sauce - sounds like some good drunk eats to me. My pizza balls were placed over a tomato risotto because I thought that would work really well with the sauce. However, I was not entirely thrilled … Continue reading M3 – May

Giovanni’s

Hello and happy TGI🍕F. This weeks pizza destination was Giovanni's on 6th Ave in downtown Veridian - er, Pittsburgh rather. CHEESE: Giovanni's cheese was mediocre. There wasn't much to it, but it didn't take away from the slice. Quite disappointing to say, as I feel the past few pizza joints have had the same do-nothing-for-the-slice cheese. DOUGH: … Continue reading Giovanni’s

Kaya

If you're looking for a cool bar scene, outdoor seating, and food that will send your taste buds on a wild ride, then head over to Kaya in the Strip District. This 'exotic and lively' cuisine inspired by the Caribbean, South America, Pacific, and beyond, was more unique than anything I've found in Pittsburgh yet. We … Continue reading Kaya

Ten Penny – Brunch

One thing I've learned about Pittsburgh is that downtown brunches are far and few between, especially on a Saturday. But I have been to Ten Penny a few times to satisfy my hangover from Friday night (or satisfy the hair of the dog). ~~~ This visit, I got the granola, bruleed grapefruit, and the Ten … Continue reading Ten Penny – Brunch

Mama Lucia’s

Hello and happy TGI🍕F. I apologize for missing the past two weeks as a combination of visiting family and travel prohibited me from my usual pizza tasting and review. Now back in Pittsburgh, the quest for the Burgh's best pizza is back on! Today we visited Mamma Lucia's in the heart of downtown for a … Continue reading Mama Lucia’s

Yinzer Eats in Boston

I got the pleasure of visiting Teddy's hometown recently - Boston. I can see why he loves the city, but still don't get why he loves their sports since he now lives in the real City of Champyinz. Jokes aside, you have to go to Boston if you've never been. There's so many different neighborhoods … Continue reading Yinzer Eats in Boston

M3 – April

This month in M3 (Mercato’s Meatball of the Month), they took a classic Italian dish and turned it into a ball. They went with a veal marsala ball - and I decided to put it over spätzle, as suggested by my waiter. This was a good take on the dish - the ball itself had a delicious … Continue reading M3 – April

Weekend in the Weed Van

Hello Yinzer Eats readers! It's meee! Clarice. I'm taking over for Rachel indefinitely and this blog now belongs to me. ... Just kidding. Sorta. But maybe someday. I'll keep you posted. In early April, Rachel & Fam visited the west coast, where they generously included me in a birthday celebration-palooza in Napa, California. Essentially the weekend was a marathon … Continue reading Weekend in the Weed Van

First Watch

Now, when I'm hungover, I'm normally screaming for chicken fingers, a burger, some Kraft, etc. around 10 am. But, First Watch was able to cure my issues without making me feel terrible (plus a few unhealthy sides b/c I needed it). ~~~ Their motto is: 'Yeah, it's fresh' and they aren't lying. I got the Avocado … Continue reading First Watch

Glass Slipper Ball

The Glass Slipper Ball has been held every year in Pittsburgh since 2004. The main goal is to raise money and awareness of women who experience human trafficking, sexual assault, etc. To pair with such a great cause, there is live music, auctions, dancing presentations, lots of vino, and of course, lots of great food... This event … Continue reading Glass Slipper Ball
