NOLA was excellent. had the red fish with beans and rice, it was good but the catfish my wife had was much better. Fried artichokes were killer. Also ate at the Lemon Grass Cafe (Thai/Cambodian) and it was quite good, had some grilled chicken over rice, lettuce, cucumbers with a pineapple sauce. Braddocks for breakfast was terribly average at best, wish the price was the same.

In this scenario, pretend you also have a 7 month pregnant wife...


We take our daughter (11 months old today) to Buffalo Wild Wings all of the time. The thing I like about going there is that they bring everything out pretty fast. So if she is in a mood, we can eat and get out pretty fast without causing a stir.

I find Braddock to be very pedestrian

I really like both NOLA and Lemon Grass Cafe.

If I go out for breakfast, it's usually DeLuca's. Love their pumpkin pancakes.

I could eat at Gullifty's and just about every other eating establishment on Murray Ave everyday and I would die a happy (and extremely obese) man. Tons of great eats in that area.

It's pretty fattening stuff....I know they had fried calzones on the menu. I'd stick to the deserts.

we went to Joe's crab shack Saturday for dinner. We wanted crabs and I suggested casino since we didn't have any reservations. Well we ended up at Joe's and let me tell you I will never ever be back. Probably the worst restaurant experience ever. Crab meat and lobster meat was super super tough. No butter. Spoons of old bay just heaped on top of everything basically ruining the meal. I had low expectations cause it was a chain but for 80 dollars I expected something half decent. Boy I was wrong

Finally made it to Union Pig and Chicken. Wonderful! I had the brisket, which was cut with a fork tender and delicious. My friend Mike had the bbq chicken. Equally as good, as were the sides ( corn bread, mac and cheese, potato salad).

Definitely merits a return trip.

went to Point Brugge Cafe for sunday brunch. Liege Waffles, Ham & Gruyere Croque Madam, Eggs Benedict and Potato Strudel were all quite delicious. Probably the best brunch I've had in a really long time, definitely check this (or Park Brugge Cafe) out.

Point Brugge/Park Brugge is my go to spot for mussels in Pittsburgh. I usually end up going to the latter, as it doesn't get as crowded typically. I've also been told Paris 66 has pretty good mussels, but have yet to go there.

Paris 66 is very good for brunch. Never had the mussels.

And yes, the 66 is for Mario. :D

Carhops in Monroeville serves a 1/2 pound Angus Burger with cheese, onions, mushrooms for 5.95. You also receive a huge serving of thick cut French fries. Its a great place that also serves great cheese steaks and other sandwiches.

Wasn't dirty when I went. But I haven't been there in over a year.

Thanks for the heads up. People at work were talking about going there today and asked if I had ever been there. I was at one in Austin years ago and I didn't think it was bad.

Honestly, I've been to Joes a couple times and I always enjoyed my meal. I will say that the last time I went with my family, they weren't crazy about their meals but maybe just a matter of what you get.

I think I got Dungeness with some kind of cajun seasoning... It was excellent.
