10 Places to Celebrate Pittsburgh Restaurant Week

The food scene of Pittsburgh is a melting pot of cultures, with each restaurant bringing a new touch to classic favorites. This gives us gourmets and gourmands many opportunities to try new things. Pittsburgh Restaurant Week doubles our reasons for getting out of the house to support great local eateries: from January 15-21 you can explore dishes these places are known for, as well as brand creations dreamed up by chefs especially for this tasty celebration.

EYV Restaurant

Deutschtown

This vegetable-forward restaurant is known for their versatile vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free dishes. For this week’s celebration, their $45.24 dinners include a choice of one starter, main course, and cheese or sweet treat. Some of the choices include Hummus Fritters, West African Pumpkin Soup, Cabbage Pastrami, Beet Wellington, St Andre Cheese, and Celery Root Napolean.

Khalil’s Middle Eastern Restaurant

Bloomfield

You’ll find authentic Syrian food ready to warm your palate and your heart at Khalil’s. Choose from three different special menus which introduce a number of new dishes. Start with $15.24 lunch meals like their new ​​Lubie Siame (green beans and sautéed onions), Chicken with Shawarma spice, and more. Then come back for $28.24 dinners of Sheik al Mishee (eggplant casserole with seasoned ground beef and tomato sauce) or Bitata Kibbee (potato, bulgar wheat (an ancient grain) seasoning, baked to perfection). Finally, end the week with a brand new Mediterranean Sunday brunch for $40.24 featuring Spinach and Cheese Quiche, Za’atar Manaeesh, and other traditional fare. 

Tupelo Honey

Station Square

Need your fix of some yummy Southern comfort cooking? The scratch-made meals at Tupelo Honey are almost as good as actually traveling down South. Try their $35.24 dinner special including choice of snack (such as Fried Pickles or Fried Green Tomatoes), main course (perhaps the hand-breaded fried chicken?), and of course, a dessert of Heavenly Banana Pudding or Brown Butter Pecan Pie. 

Over Eden

Lawrenceville

Bask in the view of the city skyline as you relax at this rooftop restaurant and bar. Start the night indulging in Pork Belly or a Fried Rice Cake accompanied by seared pork belly, pickled veggies and crispy garlic chili oil. Then dig into a main course of Eden Surf and Turf, a filet with butterflied garlic shrimp. Or if you’re more into seafood, try the Creole Seafood Pasta. This gift from the sea is made from homemade fettucine, seared scallops, and fresh langostinos in a creamy cajun alfredo. 

Blue Sky Kitchen and Bar

East Liberty

Grab your loved one and head to Blue Sky Kitchen for a local-ingredient-filled meal for two from this casual kitchen.

Selections include the Hot Honey Fried Chicken Sandwich, French Dip Sandwich, Salmon Caesar Salad, Caramel Apple French Toast, and savory Breakfast Casserole.

Bae Bae’s Kitchen

The special finishes off with a dessert selection that rotates daily. 

Muddy Waters Oyster Bar

East Liberty

Who doesn’t love the combination of Cajun cooking and fresh-caught seafood? At Muddy Waters you’ll be transported to the (much warmer) world of Po Boys, Gumbo, jazz, and blues.
