Shiloh hosts Full Pint crew for dinner
Eat Street loves a good collaboration, especially between fabulous local businesses. On Thursday, Shiloh Grill, the beloved spot situated atop Mt. Washington, will host a beer dinner with Full Pint Brewing Co. The "Hobnobber Session IPA," as it's named, will include four courses — poached-pear salad, mussels and fries, German-style rabbit stew, and a cheese and berry pairing — plus particular brews, like fan favorite Chinookie IPA. One thing's for sure: You'll leave Shiloh full of good food and brews, and newfound beer knowledge.

(123 Shiloh St., Mt. Washington; Jan. 31 at 7 p.m.; $50 per person; call to reserve spot; 412/431-4000,

Grateful Deli serves soup & more

When it's cold outside, most people crave soups and other piping-hot dishes. But when it's downright frigid, such food is almost mandatory.

Adding to the city's roster of go-to spots for hoagies, soup and more hot fare is Grateful Deli, which recently opened in Lawrenceville. With a lineup that includes calzones, salads and even breakfast, Grateful has something for everyone (yes, even vegetarians). Specialty items, like chicken cordon-bleu hoagies, are also offered.

Homestead gem puts spin on traditional vegetarian & vegan fare

In Pittsburgh, you’d be hard-pressed to find a restaurant that doesn’t serve meat. But at Tin Front, fruits and veggies are the main stars. On Homestead’s Eighth Avenue, few restaurants appear as inviting as this one, with its homey atmosphere and bubbly crew. Items like polenta with ratatouille and pierogi lasagna grace the menu. But there's also a Sunday brunch buffet, stocked with treats like vegan blueberry pancakes, spinach quiche and grits with cheddar.
