Best Cuban Sandwich - Pittsburgh Blue

shanemio | Feb 22, 2013 06:56 AM

Since I ate at Sandy's in Key West. With a fair amount of trepidation, took my Mom to Pittsburgh Blue at the Galleria yesterday for lunch. Interesting menu - really it all looked good. Prices I expected for the location and as my Mom said "this is a very classy place!" Server, who was very competent, did mention the Cuban sandwich, which I happen to love. And am almost ALWAYS disappointed in. Not so! What a great sandwich. Lovely cumin spiced pulled pork, crispy ham, cheese and a great mustard aioli sauce. The bread was described as a hoagie bun, but whatever it was, it was also really great.
My Mom had the scallops benedict and they were pretty fantastic too. Not a huge amount of food, but incredibly rich and well prepared. Perfect for my little ole Mommy.
The only downside, the wine by the glass was actually more expensive than our entrees. Again, not unexpected, and if you forgo the vino, a good deal. But who wants to do that when you are having lunch with your Mom?
