Pittsburgh has fallen in love with the Michigan Style Pizza and Iron Born is the first to take it outside of the Galley spaces. After spending the last year in Smallman Galley, Iron Born opened its own pizzeria in Millvale. The location is strictly takeout, however, it still carries signature pies including a Cubano Pie, Forager Pie and a White Pie.
The PA Market opened in late 2018 to rave reviews of a sprawling space filled with three bars, plenty of food and a great place just to gather. The PA Market includes a new pizza market, Romulus Pizza al Taglio. With an extensive menu and amazing wine wall, this is a great addition to the food space known as the Strip District.
The hidden gem on the list is Siempre Algo, new to the North Side of Pittsburgh. East Ohio Street is turning around and asking more restaurants. Siempre Algo is divided up into three courses: Snacks, Midcourse and Entrées. Snack course includes Deviled Eggs and Baba Ganoush. Midcourse includes Winter Carrots and Sweetbreads. The Entrées include a Heritage Pork Stew, Ribeye and Seared Main Scallops. Wine is by the glass or bottle and the cocktail list has some classic favorites with new twists like a Mezcal Sour.
