Three Hot Restaurants to Try During Pittsburgh Restaurant Week

Pittsburgh Restaurant Week is here and it’s time to take advantage of some of the exciting offerings around town. One of the things we love most about our community of Pittsburgh luxury apartments is the close proximity to the best restaurants around. With nearly 100 spots to choose from this week, you may need some guidance when it comes time to make your reservations. We’re highlighting three of our top picks and we highly recommend you check out their special Restaurant Week menus.


The first restaurant on our must-try list is this new spot in downtown Pittsburgh. Bridges & Bourbon is warm and inviting, with navy blue walls and brass accents that lure you in for an artisanal drink and elevated bar fare. Their Restaurant Week menu offers a three-course dinner starting with the chef’s charcuterie board or chili roasted baby carrots, followed by the option for calamari with crispy broccoli or pillow gnocchi with mushroom cream and house-made ricotta. Finish off your meal with whiskey sour gummies or a poached pear mulled wine with vanilla ice cream. Aside from the tempting menu and unique cocktail list, Bridges & Bourbon is partnered with ZeroFootprint to battle climate change, and has received a platinum designation from the Sustainable Pittsburgh Restaurant Program.


This Thai staple is offering an unbeatable Restaurant Week deal at just $20.20 for either lunch or dinner. The meal begins with a tapas selection; choose from blackened sea scallops, Thai BBQ chicken wings with spicy mayo, or a vegan faux duck salad. For the main course, Silk Elephant offers a blackened chicken breast with coconut rice and red curry or a Thai seafood bowl complete with shrimp, mussels, squid, and scallops. Like Bridges & Bourbon, they are recognized by the Pittsburgh Sustainable Restaurant Program. Head over to Squirrel Hill to check out their soaring ceilings, traditional décor, and delicious plates.


Our list wouldn’t be complete without authentic Neapolitan fare. This week, Pizzaiolo Primo is offering a three-course dinner for $35.20 which will leave you full and happy. Start with their arancini fried risotto balls served with fresh mozzarella and marinara, and move on to your main course with the option to choose between braised short rib cavatelli or rigatoni Bolognese. Finish off your meal with a classic tiramisu or cannoli for dessert.
