|Waiting for our time to meet the head chef.|
An elegantly "casual Italian eating establishment located in Pittsburgh’s Historic Strip District", across from the Cork Factory.
|We enjoyed on white marble table ~ Pumpkin - an Italian sandwich, Fireball Coyote - Gnocchi, and me - Italian Chicken Sandwich. We all LOVED what we had and it left us SO full! Then the boys found some room for dessert and shared a bite with me; Pumpkin - S'More Cheesecake & Fireball Coyote - Oreo Cake. Both were YUMMY! (even though the cheesecake was VERY rich from the chocolate.)|
|After we ate we had the grand tour.|
This is Cioppino's ~ A seafood, chophouse, bar.
It is attached to Osteria's and both are fun from one kitchen.
|Into where the action happens!|
|Each person has their own section they work ~ seafood, grill, frying, and so forth.|
|Ovens, sink, prep area ...|
|Meghan, the dessert designer.|
|A look into the frig & freezer areas with all the fresh and local ingredients.|
|Time for questions and more on the be-hind-the-scenes advice.|
Thanks Greg! We LOVED it!
When we left I spied this old church and snapped a shot. Later that night it was in the news about how they are repairing it. (Can't remember the name :-/ (mom??? )
|Pumpkin noticed the smoke coming from this place. I pointed out to him that it is the|
Heinz 57 Plant.
|A foggy Pittsburgh from the Strip District area.|
|Fireball Coyote was already beat!|
|Waiting at Hoss's Restaurant, for some family, mom & Pumpkin decided to go for a walk.|
|No sooner did they start and they arrived.|
