A great find near Heinz Hall and PNC Park! Just GO.

Needed to catch up with friends/family and ended up in this little place on 6th, and WOW! What a great find. Guess I should keep my mouth shut so it doesn’t get crowded. Had calamari seriously as good as I’ve had right out of the water at Monterey, with this killer asian sauce. Had a great salad with seared tuna in another really good sauce… i need the recipe. I’m going back as soon as I fly into town. This place is a couple doors down from Heinz Hall and I could see the Byham Theatre two doors down the other way, so I bet it’s busy with after-theatre people late. I picked it because I could park in a safe garage really close. The server was nice and she understood I was just ‘nursing’ the big martini and didn’t seem to mind we wouldn’t have a huge tab. It’s sort of dark, but I guess they need that to see all the candles everywhere. Wish I had this near where i lived; really enjoyed it here.

Dishes I tried:

Calamari

super-light batter on buttery-tasting calamari (yup, just squid), on top of a very flavorful Asian sauce, served up in a giant bowl, just right for two. So filling I couldn’t make much headway into my Seared Ahi Salad (which was still quite tasty for breakfast!). I WILL BE BACK.

Suprised I loved it!

I had to go to a business social event at Olive or Twist and I was not looking forward to it. I don't hang out downtown very much and after reading some of the reviews about the bartenders I planned on leaving early.\r \r To my suprise,…

Good food, nice atmosphere; more than just Martinis.

We went in just to sit and get something cold, thinking about hitting one of the other restaurants on the block for the main meal AND WE ENDED UP STAYING FOR HOURS. I loved that they had big salads; I got the Chicken Ceasar salad…
