Pittsburgh's dining evolution only recently began to walk on two feet. --Panini Guy
This statement hit excatly on a conversation I was having with friends family in NYC, comparing food/lifestyle cultures. I will admit, I am certainly new to the foodie world. About 6 years ago in college (and watching mulitple shows of anthony bourdain), I realized I am not werid for thinking that Sheetz and McDonalds wasn't going to cut it. I am also not strange for wanting to pay more for a quality meal, that might not give me as much quanity as other options.
However, in Pittsburgh (especially my age group lets say20-30) is almost impossible to derive from the standards of an olive garnden-ish meal.
Having said all of that, I am noticing more social venues in pitts area, offering unique options. Even in the suburbs , I am able to find a craft beer with lets say a duck confit with buffalo sauce. (not typical wester pa bar grub, but damn good)
IS THERE ANY POSSIBLE WAY to get more of my associates to open thier minds to enjoy worth while meals, rather than just the usually feed bag approach? Would Love some help or opinions
