My grandmother was an executive chef at the cheese cellar for years. I was a young child/into a young teen when she worked there and I miss it dearly. Think about it often and wish it was still around.

Re: “A farewell to Dish Osteria and Bar

I could've licked plates here on numerous occasions. Coziest, tastiest spot in the city. Was always top of our list. You will be sorely missed, delicious Dish!

Re: “A farewell to Dish Osteria and Bar

LOL @ Stephen! The place was amazing and was packed every night they were open. I went on a Wednesday evening without a reservation and was lucky to get a seat at the bar. It will be missed.

Re: “A farewell to Dish Osteria and Bar

Their massive success shows why so many people came out for these "simple meals". That's the genius of good Italian cooking; taking something simple and making it absolutely sublime. I'll miss this place, it leaves a hole in Pittsburgh.

Re: “A farewell to Dish Osteria and Bar

The local market weeded this place out; no parking options, poor and repulsive location, high prices for simple meals you could prepare in seconds at home. Get out!

Re: “A farewell to Dish Osteria and Bar

$18 for a simple bowl of pasta? Yeah, this is not New York. Be gone.

Oxygen doesn't skunk beer. It oxidizes it. Only sunlight can make a beer skunky. Get your stuff together, Scott. You should know this.

Re: “Classic sandwiches get great new presentations at Allison Park’s Stak Shak

Their food is very good and the decor is super cute. However, it's difficult to enjoy any of that because the seating is SO UNCOMFORTABLE!! The bar seats are especially uncomfortable and instead of wanting to linger over a nice dinner, we couldn't wait to leave. They have a fantastic cocktail, craft beer, and wine menu and we were so excited to try this great new place near our home. Unfortunately, it's just not pleasant to hang out there. The bar stools are actually painful! Too bad.

Please proof-read the instructions and edit or clarify. You have the chicken and onions going in at two different times.
