I want to try this place. Ate at a similar place in Toronto and it was fantastic.


I went to Emporio last night. I had the poutine with egg and a classic meatball. It was delicious. I also had a spicy pork meatball/arrabiata slider -- pretty good. They could use another spicy sauce on the menu, imo. They have beef, spicy pork, chicken and vegetarian meatball options. You can get one (a slider), two (panini), three (grinder), four (saucy balls). You can pick one sauce with your meatball(s) (unless you get separate sliders). They have a daily meatball special too. Last night it was bacon cheeseburger meatball, which was half beef, half bacon w/ government cheese. Tried the fried pickles also. They were good. Only criticism was it was tough to get at the sliders given the plates. Also thought the sliders should be a bit more flavorful. Still, $3 sliders is fun, and they will do well with people sitting there drinking their good beer and ordering slider after slider.

The draft list is quite good. Half off all drafts and $5 wine glass for Happy Hour (4:00-6:00), which I missed.

The space is great. Rooftop will be open before second floor. Service was good, especially considering it was day 7.

Given the absolutely awful experience I had at Ten Penny re service/check issues, I doubt I'd go to Ten Penny over Emporio again.

Yinz should check out the Nepalese restaurant:

I've only ever been to one Nepalese restaurant, but the curry I had was fantastic.
It kind of tasted like dirt....and I mean that as a compliment. Very earthen.

Can't wait until the 21st. Coming to Pittsburgh for the weekend. Too many restaurants (and bars) we want to go to: Kaya, Fatheads, Sharp Edge, Milanos (pre-pens game tradition) It's gonna be a good weekend.

Anyone been to Texas De Brazil yet? Is it better or worse than Green Forest? I saw on their website (TDB) if you mention penguins hockey you get $25 off 2 dinners.

Went to Texas de Brazil a couple months ago, but I've never been to Green Forest so I can't give you a comparison. TdB was damn good though. The picanha is amazing.

If it wouldn't take me an hour to go the 10 miles to get there from work, I'd totally be down. Need to make a trip on the weekend sometime.

Anyone been to Butcher and Rye? Saw it in that article LITT posted. Might be an option for my Pittsburgh trip in a couple weeks.
