Headed to Pittsburgh? Don’t miss these five fine-dining restaurants.

 

Altius

This restaurant with dramatic views sits atop Mount Washington. The menu is filled with sumptuous dishes any gourmand could appreciate, and the stellar staff certainly doesn’t disappoint either. Don’t skimp and just order an entree. The cocktails and dessert are both can’t-miss all on their own.

 

Fish Nor Fowl

Fish Nor Fowl is part of the Richard Deshantz Restaurant Group, all of which are an incredible choice. Fish Nor Fowl serves up a limited menu with gems such as roasted wild mushrooms with pine nut risotto, soft duck egg and spruce tips; a cassoulet for two with confit duck legs, cannelloni beans, sausage, bacon and pork cheeks; and pork schnitzel, with braised mushrooms, roasted shallots, vermouth and watercress.

 

Floor 2

Located at the Fairmont Pittsburgh, Floor 2, or fl.2, sources inspiration from the local culinary and agricultural scene, as well as the chef’s extensive experiences, including growing up in an Italian restaurant. However, this is no Italian eatery. The menu is modern American, with dishes like chicken hand pies with Parmesan, apple and mushroom; fried oyster tartan with tomato confit and watercress; and octopus with lentils.

 

The Twisted Frenchman

The Twisted Frenchman serves modern French cuisine, as you might expect, over the span of four, eight or 18 courses. Items you might see on the menu include pheasant, foie gras, bouillabaisse and lamb-wrapped lamb (a combination of lamb chops and ground lamb).

 

Eleven

In Pittsburgh’s Strip District, known for its food and local flavors, Eleven sits in a rehabilitated warehouse. The elegant eatery boasts a seafood-rich menu, with dinner options including Canadian halibut with Brussels sprouts; Scottish salmon with potatoes and lentils; and linguini with jumbo lump crab and vegetables.
