4 Pittsburgh Dinner and a Show Pairings

Karla Boos, artistic director of Quantum Theatre, shares with TABLE readers a few food-and-drama pairings for a fascinating night out. Look no further for your next dinner and a show.

Attack Theatre and Pizza Talarico

Headed to see a modern dance performance at Attack Theatre? Start your night up the hill at Piazza Talarico for a slice of pizza or some antipasto and a pre-show glass of wine. 

Con Alma and Pittsburgh Symphony

It’s the perfect evening in Downtown’s Cultural District for music lovers. Pair an evening performance of the Pittsburgh Symphony with a visit to Con Alma, Downtown’s popular restaurant and jazz bar. 

barebones productions and the Theater’s Adjacent Restaurant Space

The former Superior Motors restaurant space in Braddock continues to provide delicious food and drink offerings with pop-up bar and restaurant service available during select barebones’ performances. Recent shows were paired with pop-ups from Brew Gentlemen, G.S. Sando Co., and Jackie Kennedy Catering. I enjoyed a sublime Scotch egg on a Friday evening after a fantastic show. 

Revival on Lincoln and Cross-Stitch Theater at Pittsburgh Savoyards 

 Pair a performance at Pittsburgh Savoyards with a bite to eat from Revival. I recently enjoyed a delicious meal at the Bellevue restaurant before walking to see a production at Savoyards by Cross-Stitch Theater, an impressive new company dedicated to amplifying the voices of lesser-heard women.
