PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Are your taste buds tired of the same old dinners?
How about trying something new?
KDKA-TV’s Sarah Arbogast has a look at the local restaurants taking part in this summer’s Restaurant Week in Pittsburgh.
From fresh seafood at McCormick and Schmick’s, to French cuisine at Paris 66 in Shadyside, Restaurant Week will not disappoint.
In fact, there are 72 restaurants taking part.
“They put together special menus, with special menu pricing specifically to celebrate Restaurant Week,” Restaurant Week Director Brian McCollum said.
The participating restaurants are all over the city and surrounding areas.
“It goes all the way up to Aspinwall, Monroeville, Mt. Lebanon, Robinson, Moon Township, it really spans, we’ll say a 30-mile range,” McCollum said.
The restaurants range from casual to fine dining.
Most are offering a special for $20.14, or a three-course, fixed price meal, typically for $35.14.
McCollum said. It’s a win-win for guests and the establishments.
“The restaurants are really doing really well. Based on statistics that I’ve been getting, the winter Restaurant Week netted over $500,000 in spending for that one week,” McCollum said.
McCollum expects this week to be another success.
He said its best to make reservations because many of the most popular spots fill up fast.

McCollum is encouraging people to take pictures of their meals to upload to the Restaurant Week website. The best photo will be selected for an award.
Restaurant Week goes until Sunday.
