What's on the Menu for Fall Dining in Pittsburgh?

If this week’s weather has put you in the mood for Autumnal spices and rich-flavorful comfort foods, you’re in luck. Pittsburgh Post-Gazette restaurant critic Melissa McCart says in the coming weeks, roughly  20 new restaurants will be opening in the Pittsburgh area.

"We're seeing a lot of casual fare. But then again we're also seeing casual small plates with more refined details," says McCart.

McCart says poultry looks to be prominent on fall menus. And more vegetables look to be on the table for Pittsburgh, including brussel sprouts and various types of pickles.

And even though we're in the middle of Pittsburgh Cocktail Week, she predicts more diverse beer options, with the potential guidance of cicerones.
