Lately it seems like Pittsburgh is stepping up their hotel-restaurant game, and Eliza Hot Metal Bistro is no exception. With a basically brand new interior, the cutest design, a gorgeous rooftop bar, and totally drool-worthy menu, you need to put it on your list to try ASAP.

They like to call themselves Polished Pittsburgh, the kind of place where you’re comfortable the minute you sit down. The dishes on the menu are very Pittsburgh-friendly – like a fried fish sandwich that they compared to an upscale Whale of a Cod. It’s the type of menu where you know exactly what the dishes are, but you also know they’re made fresh with as many local ingredients as possible. Eliza keeps the menu small so they can make sure everything on it is amazing. It also changes seasonally, depending on what’s available. In fact, they’re going to be updating the menu soon, so keep an eye out!

Naturally, Eliza is serving up local beer and hard cider at their bar. Which, by the way, is great for mingling. It’s spacious enough that you won’t be jammed in with your friends. And the prices are reasonable enough that you can easily get that second drink! When the weather is nice, you can hang out on their rooftop bar…although it’s currently closed for the season.

Speaking of their rooftop bar, you can reserve it for private events, which we think sounds like a blast. (Please invite us!) They also do all of the catering for any events held within the Hotel Indigo.

One of their favorite things about being inside a hotel is that they get to be ambassadors to anyone visiting Pittsburgh. They get a lot of guests (many of them international guests) staying for the week, so they really get to know them. We love that…it’s all about spreading the Pittsburgh love!
