Pittsburgh Restaurant Week began in 2012, and has become very successful due to the social media influence of food bloggers and twitter users, helping to boost the excitement. The idea of having the event is not only about supporting local restaurants, but designed to help business during a rather slow time of the year.

Want to make a reservation online? There are 35 restaurants using Open Table, which is conveniently listed next to each name. Check it out here.

And if you’re looking to BYOB, you can check out Bonefish Grill in the North Hills, along with Ember and Vine Woodfire Oven & Social Bar in Cranberry.

The event runs from January 14th-20th. You can check out the entire list of restaurants and all the info here.
