Pittsburgh is a foodie town. No need to eat at chains here with our local food scene! With so many great restaurants to try, it’s always fun to take advantage of sampling opportunities. Best Bites Pittsburgh is an afternoon of tastings at 20 restaurants, bars, and specialty shops downtown. Who will be crowned the Best Bites in Pittsburgh?
Downtown Pittsburgh Restaurant Crawl
This Downtown Pittsburgh Restaurant Crawl takes place on Saturday, October 12, from 2-5 p.m. with multiple check-in points to make it easy to get around. Check-in at Emporio, Molinaro Restorante, Pork & Beans, or Talia Cucina to get your official lanyard and map.
From there, take a self-guided tour through some of the best restaurants, pubs and dessert shops around.
Who’s Who on the List
Some favorite restaurants on the crawl list include Emporio, Fogo de Chao, McCormick & Schmick’s, NOLA on the Square, Pork & Beans, Union Standard, and Talia Cucina. Grab drinks from Bridges & Bourbon, Wigle Whiskey Tasting Room and Wolfie’s Pub. Then finish the night off with desserts from The Milkshake Factory and Millie’s Homemade Ice Cream.
Twenty restaurants may seem like a lot to keep track of, but you’ll have to do your best because you get a say in who is crowned the best of the best. At the end of the restaurant crawl, you get to vote for the Best Bite, Best Drink, and Best Shop.
