Drew’s Family Restaurant has been serving the Pittsburgh area for over 100 years. Located at 2060 Ardmore Boulevard, the semi-famous eatery is well known for serving homemade, quality food. We arrived early in the morning for breakfast on a Wednesday, and the place was bustling with a hungry breakfast crowd.
There’s a large selection of burger places in Pittsburgh, and I’ve tried them all. It’s difficult to mess up a hamburger really- all you really need is a good ground meat mixture, proper seasoning, and the right cooking technique.
When it was suggested that we go to Noodles and Company in Monroeville, I was skeptical. It was the middle of the afternoon, and I didn’t want pasta, but something lighter. Turns out, the restaurant has a large selections of light, fresh salads as in addition to a vast selection of pasta.
The Waterfront is always bustling with hungry diners on Saturday night. This particular evening, it was a balmy 91 degrees in the shade, so we weren’t surprised that there were plenty of outside tables available at Uno Chicago Grill.
Growing on the west coast, I became very familiar with authentic Mexican food. After relocating to the east coast, I was surprised that there were so few choices when it came to getting good carne asada, or soft-shelled tacos. In hopes of getting some good Mexican grub, I visited Gran Agave at the Waterfront with my family this weekend.
The Swissvale Farmer’s Market is held every Saturday 9am- 1pm May 7th through October 9th. If you love fresh food, and hanging around like-minded culinarians, the Swissvale Farmer’s Market is worth a visit!
