Pittsburgh favorites

Just came back from "dish osteria " .. It was fantastic ... I would have to say , it is one of my favourite places in Pitt. I had one of their specials ... Rabbit tenderloin w/ mushroom based wine sauce and Brussels sprouts that were out of this world ... And I don't really like that particular veggy ... Try it

brunswick dining

the waiter said there were no 1 or 1/14 lb lobster , so he asked if we wanted t the next larger size @ " approx 1 1/2 or more ,and charged $34.95 for the dinner ... our own fault for not asking " how much more ?",,,, also, 6 steamed clams were $10.95 !!! I can get a whole doz. in any restaurant away from the Coast for the same price or better !!

the lobster dinner was with a 1 1/4 lb lobster that sold for $ 35.00...I realize there is prep work and the cost of a potatoe and a 1/2 ear of corn ... so maybe $4.50 tops for cost of food ????and the service and taste was bland , BLAND !!!

spent a week in harpswell, me. the seafood restaurants along the coast are all RIP-OFFS... AND TERRIBLE FOOD !!!! typical boiled lobster w/ baked potatoe for $35-45 when the lobsters can be purchased for $ 3.50 per lb. COOKS was the worst !.....so we decided to go into BRUNSWICK. Henry & Marty was fantastic. and even better was CLEMENTINE!! great choices in town , but stay away from the the places with the views along the water .you are better off buying you lobster and taking them back to your place to eat.....will gie you more details if you need......jimpir
