DiAnoia's Gnocchi Pumpkin Bowl a fall favorite in Pittsburgh PA

Pittsburgh Fall Food and Drinks

Celebrate and enjoy the tastes of Autumn in Pittsburgh 🍂

If fall is your favorite season, you know that you have to run (not walk) to enjoy all the fall eats and treats before they are gone. Especially in Pittsburgh, fall tends to be particularly short, so be sure to enjoy all of the pumpkin, turkey and apple cider donuts before the season’s end.

Mad Mex Gobblerito

The infamous burrito from Mad Mex only comes around this time of year. If you love all the Thanksgiving food, then why not eat it in burrito form with the Mad Mex apple cider margarita on the side? Celebrate the great feast holiday more than once. Turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes. What more could you ask for?

DiAnoia's Gnocchi Pumpkin Bowl

This fall treat not only tastes amazing but is one of the most Instagrammable fall dishes in the city! Served inside a freshly roasted pumpkin, DiAnoia's fall special features house-made potato gnocchi tossed in a pumpkin cream sauce made with cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice combined with mozzarella, parmesan and pecorino cheese and fresh basil. Gnocchi pumpkin bowls are available for dine-in or take-out for a very limited time.

Pumpkin Beer and Hard Apple Cider

Pumpkin beer and seasonal hard cider drinks are back, but only for a short time. Get your pumpkin beer fix at Southern Tier Brewing Company, Mike's Beer Bar or Bierport to grab and go. Stock up on your favorites because these fly off the shelves and are stopped in production shortly after starting to prepare for winter brews. Also, check out Pittsburgh’s own hard cider house Arsenal Cider in one of their many locations.

Farmer’s Market Treats

Capitalize on the local farmer’s markets during the cool fall weather. Soergels or Trax Farms are a great place to start and stock up on your fall favorites, including apple cider donuts, kettle corn and all of the pumpkin-y baked goods. Take some pumpkins to-go to make homemade pie and savory pumpkin seeds for snacking.

Bruster's Seasonal Flavors

Bringing Beverages Back (from the Grave)

Pittsburgh is the birthplace of zombies, so there's no place better to bring back the dead than right here. Wigle Whiskey has Frankenstein'd (sure, that's a verb) its last batch of Hopped Whiskey, aged it for three years and released it as Hopped Zombie Whiskey for a very limited time. If you're into more beyond the pale ales, follow Necromancer Brewing's Resurrection Series where they bring back old styles of beer to a modern audience.
