Best Restaurants in Pittsburgh in 2019



(page 9 of 11)


 

SUPERIOR MOTORS

Cuisine: New American
It’s Best Because: It’s innovative and also fun. 

Pittsburgh Magazine’s Best New Restaurant of 2018 keeps rolling strong, with Executive Chef/Co-Owner Kevin Sousa deepening his exploration of what new American cookery means. Dishes such as mackerel with shoyu, leek, mushroom and dill are rooted in our region while at the same time draw from global influences. Pair those dishes with a selection or two from Superior Motors’ superlative beverage program.

Sousa’s introduction of a series of collaborative dinners with like-minded chefs and reasonably priced weekday tasting menus gives diners even more of a reason to visit the Braddock restaurant.

BRADDOCK: 1211 Braddock Ave.

TAIWANESE BISTRO CAFE 33

Cuisine: Taiwanese
It’s Best Because: You get real-deal Taiwanese cuisine paired with excellent service. 

In what used to be a laundromat is now the best Taiwanese restaurant menu in Pittsburgh. Executive Chef/Co-Owner Asan Tao’s menu is full of tasty hits such as three-cup chicken, scallion pancake with egg or beef (I prefer the egg), pan-fried noodles and beef stew noodle soup. Look into the deeper cuts, too — dishes such as turnip cake, tripe with vegetables and jellyfish with celery salad are also worth your attention.

Co-Owner Jenny Tao makes the bubble tea — testing each batch from a tiny cup — and oversees the front-of-house staff; if you’re unfamiliar with Taiwanese cuisine, be sure to lean on them as your guide.

THE TWISTED FRENCHMAN

Cuisine: Modern French
It’s Best Because: You can experience fine dining with a touch of modernism. 

In the beautifully outfitted kitchen of what used to be an auction house, Twisted Frenchman Executive Chef/Partner Andrew Garbarino crafts multi-course tasting menus built with high-quality ingredients and a fusion of modern and classic techniques.

General Manager Yannick Thomas oversaw front-of-house operations at a pair of two-Michelin-star restaurants in France prior to moving to Pittsburgh — his approach to service is extraordinary.
