Reading/Berks Restaurants???

Can you be more specific as to what you are looking for....and what area of Berks County do you prefer? Judy's in Reading is good.....as is Hong Thanh in Reading.....just to name a few.

The Yellow House Hotel

check out www.savorygrille.com....one the the best if not THE best in the county....reservations are best as it is small.....Landis is also very good, but Savory is probably a tad better...

Seafood recs in Pittsburgh

Ended up at Mallorca on the rec of a friend.... www.mallorcarestaurant.com .......loads of seafood specials not on the menu....very well prepared. Shellfish medley with garlic butter sauce, Chilean sea bass w/white wine, butter, capers & lemon, stuffed salmon, scallops w/Grand Marnier sauce....all were served with some tasty saffron rice and steamed veggies for all to share. Service was great too...very friendly and accommodating staff!

PGH Restaurant -Parents Weekend

We were just in the 'burgh this past weekend and took our seafood-deprived Pitt freshman to Mallorca www.mallorcarestaurant.com on the rec of a friend. Location is South Side. Seafood was very well prepared, atmosphere is casual, and there was great saffron rice served for all. There were MANY seafood (and other dishes) specials that were not on the menu. Another great place if you like mussels (although other seafood there was also well prepared) is Point Brugge Cafe www.pointbrugge.com located in Point Breeze
