PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – If you’re hungry for something new when you’re eating out, next week may be your best opportunity.
Restaurants across the area will soon be buzzing as another Pittsburgh Restaurant Week kicks off Monday.
“Restaurant Week is really a celebration. The restaurants are offering a discounted special menu in celebration of, as a give back to the community,” Restaurant Week Director Brian McCollum said.
A total of 76 restaurants are participating this time around, which is more than ever.
There is something to tempt every taste bud from rom Mexican to Italian and everywhere in between.
Places like Diamond Market and Grill in Market Square, Butcher and the Rye on Sixth Street and not far from that, the Capital Grille on Fifth Avenue Downtown.
“What we’re doing is a three-course prefixed menu. They get their choice of an appetizer, an entree, and a dessert and at dinner its $35 and at lunch it’s $16,” Capital Grille Executive Chef Travis Hall said.
“Most of the specials end with 14 cents for 2014, but the actual specials could vary between a three-course, fixed priced meal or a specialty item for $20.14,” McCollum said.
Many restaurants are donating the 14 cents to Children’s Hospital.
The locations aren’t all in the heart of the city.
On the list: BRGR and Spoon in East Liberty and just down the street, Paris 66, which is an authentic French bistro.
Restaurant week runs from Jan 13-19 and you can find out more information here.
The restaurants recommend making reservations.
