Special Night Out

We were in Pittsburgh recently for a family visit and decided to check out downtown and we are so glad we did since we found the most amazing place with great food. Yes, I’m speaking about Meat & Potatoes. You must call to get reservations since they are always booked and I can see why, food is amazing, atmosphere is soft and relaxing a place where you can go and really enjoy a conversation with the person/people you may be with (unlike other places). I suggest you put this on your must try list.

Disappointed

After hearing good things about the food and service, I expected much more. We ordered the Tater, Fried Brussels and Fried Chicken Livers for snacks and was amazed at the greasiness of the food and the livers were bland and barely done. The Burger and Short Rib Flatbread was good but the Pot Roast was bland, stringy and not too tasty. Also disappointing was the food temps, which was lukewarm to cold. Overall this experience was a let down and probably will not return.

Fantastic food and atmosphere!

Meat & Potatoes is right in downtown Pittsburgh. The restaurant is very open with the tables around a large bar. It is very New York City, with a minimalist, eccentric feel. The menu changes often and offers an array of flavors for every pallet.

We had the bone marrow appetizer which was good. It was like a smoky gelatin to spread on bread. The tuna appetizer was out of this world! My only complaint is the seaweed salad was at the bottom, and I wish I would have known about it earlier in my eating of it.

I had the pork chop, which was huge and cooked to perfection. My husband had the Waygu beef which was outstanding. I think everything was cooked to perfection, although some of the sauce matchings weren’t perfected yet; that being said, it was an outstanding meal. We will definitely go back, as I heard the brunch is to die for.
