As the summer is winding down and you are getting tired of cooking for the family or eating at the same restaurant every weekend Pittsburgh Restaurant Week is here to save you from your food slump. 

Summer 2019’s Pittsburgh Restaurant Week runs from Aug. 12-18 and will feature more than 75 restaurants from around the Greater Pittsburgh area. Restaurants can choose to offer multi-course lunches or dinners, or, in some cases, brunch, with a set price ranging from $16.19 to $35.19. This event allows Pittsburgh-area restaurants the ability to showcase their menus and gives diners many options at an affordable price.

This year, Restaurant Week has expanded to eight new locations in Westmoreland County and Pittsburgh. These new locations include The Lamplighter Restaurant in Delmont, Cenacolo Restaurant in North Huntingdon, Lily’s at River Forest Country Club in Allegheny Township, Scratch Food and Beverage in Troy Hill, Garbarino’s in East Liberty, Poulet Bleu in Lawrenceville, Crafted North downtown and Rock Bottom at the Waterfront in Homestead. 

Some participating restaurants offer an early access promotion, starting Aug. 9, which allows diners to try the special menu and pricing before Restaurant Week begins. 

A complete list of restaurants with menus and amenities can be found online, as well as a restaurant map and a restaurant roulette game to help you choose where to go.
