The show started out well, but quickly became a bit overwhelming and repetitive- a sensory overload to say the least. When the lights came on, and the intermission bell chimed, we decided to skip the second act (along with many other folks) and have an early dinner. We chose Bravo Franco, located at 613 Penn Avenue, because of its close proximity to the theater.

A considerable amount of burger joints have popped up in Pittsburgh over the past few years. BRGR (check out my review HERE), Burgatory, and Winghart’s all have multiple locations in the area. I recently got to sample the fare at Burgatory at the Waterworks.

I had the opportunity to eat at California Pizza Kitchen in Ross Park Mall recently. The name intimates an Italian eatery, but nothing could be further from the truth.

Whether you’re an incoming freshman or a seasoned senior, you should already know that Pittsburgh is an incredible college town. There’s no shortage of outdoor activities, culture, sporting events and restaurants. In fact, the ‘burgh has a wide variety of restaurants from all the over world from Caribbean to India to Germany. But, which places can you afford to go to on a limited budget that isn’t Primanti’s or Quaker Steak’s?
There’s an abundance of good, privately owned coffee shops in Pittsburgh, especially in the east end. These gathering spots provide quality Joe, pastries, and pleasant atmospheres for their patrons. Lately, my favorite go-to spot has been Biddle’s escape in Regent Square. I go there every Sunday to read my paper, drink hot Joe (with heavy cream) and chat with my friends. Today however, I tried a new spot on Braddock Avenue, 61 B Café.
Pasqualino’s Italian Eatery, Murrysville
It’s been a while since I’ve tried any new restaurants in Pittsburgh. I’ve gone out to eat many times- I’ve just been dining at my regular spots.
