The original Sazerac used cognac rather than whisky until due to a shortage of cognac and an abundance of rye whiskey coming down the Mississippi River that started it's journey in western Pennsylvania, rye became the standard. I prefer mine with cognac. And now with the change in the law you can use real absinthe.
Lookin' good Thomas :)
Can't agree more with your assessment - Chi Chi's 2.0 with worse service. Vastly disappointing.
Beautiful.. I have found them in Frick Park.. Saute them in omelets.. yummm..
Oh and those are chanterelles and chicken of the woods (not hen of the woods) in the picture above.
So cool. Thanks for doing this! My husband and I got into mushroom foraging last year.
Spindrift isn't alcoholic.
Editor's note: Thanks, we've made the changes.
Frankie's was there when Lawrenceville was still the stomping grounds for prostitutes and ne'er do wells, when every corner had pee-stained mattresses and every fifth window was broken.
Ah yes, those were the days!
....about 1 and 2....?
The Abbey's Smoky Provolone Burger is amazing... I dream about this burger in between visits.
I mean, the place is fine - better than most of what Lawrenceville has been regurgitating lately. These descriptions, though, are wildly exaggerated and inaccurate.
Deeply Old World atmosphere? Iconoclastic? Pittsburgh's newly hip clientele?
A lovely little place. Thanks Bob!
Nice little piece, Celine, on a nice little place, isn't it?
Long Live the Rebellion!!!
Recipe looks lovely....but personally I'd recommend getting your inner druid on Stonehenge at the winter solstice rather than the summer one. Less busy, more druid-y :)
Nice piece, Drew!
Love this place, and everything about it. I grew up going to this place when it was Huling's corner store. We used to buy penny candy from Vi's to enjoy with family/friends and neighbors while watching 8mm (I'm showing my age. Lol) movies outside in our yard that my dad borrowed from his work at Pittsburgh BPOE.
I'm so happy that a lot of the antique charm remains present in the space, right down to my childhood pal Barney's name carved into the woodwork! He even got a sandwich named after him!!!
I cant wait for the rooftop garden!!!
I still have contact through social media with Lynn who is related to Viola Hulings!!!!
I especially love that Alexis and Bobby are our neighbors!!! AWESOME PEOPLE!!!!!
I love the Pear and the Pickle! The food is great Bobby needs to bring back his awesome fries more than just one day a week they are the best!!! I live on Tours Street it is so nice having a good place to eat so close to home!! Bobby and Alexis is a very nice couple and their boys are adorable I am so glad they are our neighbors!
