🍻 June 2023 Pittsburgh restaurant roundup

Not gonna lie; this month’s Pittsburgh food news is pretty boozy. We’re pouring updates including some fancy new openings, intriguing changes of the guard and the end of the line for an Oakland favorite. Digest it all below.

👋 Welcome

🍷 City Winery opens this month in the Terminal. Patrons of the New York-based establishment will find a dozen house wines on tap and an ample stage for performances, plus private rooms for events and an outdoor patio. (Strip District)

🧇 Geppetto’s has a new Bloomfield outpost. The breakfast, brunch and pastry spot will have some new offerings at the Liberty Avenue location. (Bloomfield)

🍸 Mullett’s is bringing a classy lounge atmosphere to the South Hills dining scene. The Beverly Road bar specializes in bourbon and cocktails and features a small stage for live performances. (Mt. Lebanon)

🌮 Pick up some gas and tacos at El Pariente on Liberty. The BP gas station and taqueria promise to fill you up with the latest south-of-the-border flavors to pop up in Pittsburgh. (Bloomfield)

😃 See you soonish

🍺 Galley Group is resurrecting The Korner Pub as Arthur’s Korner Pub, bringing new life to the venerable South Hills dive. Innovative alumni of the group’s food halls have become a major presence in the local scene, but Galley Group plans to keep Arthur’s as intimate as its predecessor. (Mt. Lebanon)

🍺 Nied’s Hotel could soon reopen thanks to investment from the co-owners of Spirit (which is also adding a revamped outdoor area). The Butler Street fish-sandwich fixture had been in operation for 78 years prior to the pandemic. The new investors want to keep the bar mostly the same and turn the upper floors into a working boutique hotel. (Upper Lawrenceville)

🍛 Pilez will be serving garbage plates in the original Mad Mex location. You read that right: Pilez will specialize in the Rochester, NY specialty and is aiming for an August opening. (Oakland)

😲 Ch-ch-changes

🍺 Cinderlands Foederhouse is doing a series of collabs starting with a guest tap rotation from Philly’s Human Robot Brewing. Look for those brews and a curated beer dinner starting June 9. (Lower Lawrenceville)

🍺 Resurrection artists Necromancer Brewing Co. are at it again: Now celebrating their second anniversary, the brewery’s given the Franktuary truck a consistent home and will soon take over Hough’s in Greenfield even as they prep for expansion and renovation of their Babcock Boulevard taproom. The ex-Hough’s spot should open in September. (Shaler)

😭 Goodbye

🍺 Fuel & Fuddle has called it quits after 27 years in the heart of town. The neighborhood bar was one of the early establishments to focus on craft beer and served legions of Pitt and CMU students over the years. (Oakland)
