Everyone knows and loves Pittsburgh Restaurant Week…but what if you live outside the city? It can be challenging to fight traffic and find parking sometimes, and that’s why we’re so excited to tell you that Greensburg is having their own Restaurant Week from August 19 – 25!

Greensburg Restaurant Week is organized by Think Greensburg. Think Greensburg is a non-profit organization established to assist the City of Greensburg with the redevelopment and revitalization of downtown Greensburg.

If you’ve never participated in a restaurant week, the concept is pretty simple (and delicious). Participating restaurants offer a prix fixe menu of lunch and/or dinner specials – so you can eat out for a fixed price – that’s usually reduced from normal prices. This year, you can find restaurants that range from casual to fine dining during Greensburg Restaurant Week.

Bar Nine is the only Gastro Pub in the Greensburg restaurant scene, so this is the perfect chance to check them out! They’re serving up everything from flatbreads to burgers, seafood to filet. And their cocktails…well, we’ll be sipping on an Elderflower Gin Mule, thank you.

Café Marchand at the Westmoreland

Located within the Westmoreland Museum of Art, Café Marchand is another new Greensburg restaurant. They feature a rotating seasonal menu with dishes like hot soup, quiche, sandwiches, and pastries that you can enjoy with your coffee, beer, or wine. Bonus: they have live music on Fridays during the summer!
