Our first pleasure of eating at Meat and Potatoes was when it first opened last year. It is one of our favorite places in the city of Pittsburgh. In fact, its made our Pittsburgh Favorite list.
About Meat and Potatoes
Chef Richards’ favorite type of food is simple and approachable; it is the type of food that a chef would eat after a busy day at work. Meat & Potatoes, Pittsburgh’s first gastropub, was born in the spring of 2011.
Meat and Potatoes is located at 649 Penn Avenue in the heart of the Cultural District, neighboring the Benedum Center and Heinz Hall. Make plans to visit before, or after, your show.
Let’s go in…
The make-your-own Bloody Mary Bar. This is available during Brunch. You choose your vodka, and add whatever your heart desires. Mine was bacon fused vodka adding in horseradish, roasted red peppers, garlic and garnished with olives. Though, Glen and my sister ate my olives.
This is very cool and clever.
Friend Chicken and Waffles seem to be a trend in Pittsburgh lately. This is the best in town! The waffles are fused with jalapenos. The chicken is a perfect mix from the crunchy breading to the mouthwatering juices. A must try.
Huevos Rancheros. All I can say about this is that you need to get there and try it. Moan-worthy.
Meat and Potatoes have four menus. Brunch, Lunch, Dinner and Libations. From the service and the experience, to the talented and creative chefs, this makes it one of my favorite places in Pittsburgh.
