Re: “Bistro 9101

I love the bistro! The north hills truly needed this. I would recommend their steakhouse Saturdays or live music on Fridays. One of my new favorite spots by far!

Re: “Central Diner

As a transplant from Jersey, I can say that, not only are they a true representation of the traditional Jersey diner, they are probably one of the best I've ever been to. Wishing Jennifer and Dimitri the best of luck for continued success.

Re: “Central Diner

Yes, it was a Denny's, not an Eat n' Park. I noticed this reading the paper today and came here specifically to request a correction.

Re: “Central Diner

That's what I was going to say as well -- pretty sure that was a Denny's, not an Eat n' Park.

Big improvement either way, though.

Re: “Central Diner

Is that where those vaguely Greek themed ubiquitous NYC coffee cups come from?

Re: “South Side Barbecue Company

The PGH BBQ Co. is fantastic, I always visit when they partake in food truck roundups at the Pittsburgh Public Market in the Strip District and can't day one thing bad about their food...Pat and Mike are fantastic owners who are passionate about their food and their customers, IMO their new venture is an asset to this great city, here's to many years of success!

Re: “South Side Barbecue Company

Best brisket in western PA is located on Route 28 north in the borough of Hawthorn at Tuff's Smokin' Grill, well worth the drive, come early before it sells out!! Check it out on Facebook

Re: “THE CHEESE CELLAR

I miss you more than you could ever know. You were the cheese to my cracker. Quite literally. Love, Teecie

Re: “The Yard

@ClevelandRocks Diners across the nation have making melts of all varieties for decades. Plus, just about every major city has a fancy grilled cheese/melt joint. The point is there are lots of places that are serving up delicious lactose-filled creations...just be happy you have one too!

Re: “The Yard

How lazy, this is an obvious rip off of Melt Bar and Grilled.

Re: “Paris 66

Mild as opposed to bold (think chicken vs. duck), but intense vs. bland (think poached chicken vs. roasted).

Re: “Cole Cafe

I've been a fan of Cole Café for years. It doesn't need to be anything more but what it is - a diner with solid, dependable output, and ensures sure your cup doesn't go empty. The specials sometimes surprise you - like the quiche - and they hit the spot as well.

Re: “Paris 66

How can something be both mild and intense?

Re: “Paris 66

I've been three times this year - once for my birthday for a prix-fixe meal on a weeknight that featured oeufs meurette (think the classiest eggs and bacon in a bacon wine sauce, served with perfect toast points), lamb with a brown sauce, and a simple galette with a birthday candle; once as a French teacher at lunchtime for the student prix-fixe meal that allowed my students all to experience an entree, dessert, drink and tip for a very affordable price (so affordable we sprung for the escargots, and boy were they great!); and once with my aunt for a week-end dinner with all the fixings and a shared bottle of organic Cote du Rhone wine. All I can say is - oh la la! The servers spoke French with me the entire time (I happened to get each of the French servers once, and one of them twice, although I've seen some very capable English-only waiters at nearby tables), and I felt like I was sitting in Paris - no pressure from service, perfectly appointed meals and tables, time to talk, no pressure to leave. It was wonderful. I'd go every month if we could, and I think we're about overdue! Go, Allez-y, c'est excellent!

Re: “Southern Hospitality

I would have to be there the same day the critic visited. My experiences. Yes i said experiences have been horrible. First off we've had to wait about 10 minutes just for someone to come acknowledge our presence. Our food takes about 20 minutes to come. The yams or sweet potatoes whatever they are may as well have been mashed. Mac n cheese had no flavor and it wasnt cheesy. Oh Troy asked how we liked the food. I told him my mac n cheese had water at the bottom of the bowl. He said it was milk. Sigh. Clear milk huh. We keep going because my boyfriend wants to support a black business owner. Quite frankly im fed up. How much support does he need if the food n service are terrible?

Re: “Istanbul Sofra

We have really enjoyed this place since it opened, including the excellent service. And do not miss the rice pudding!

Re: “Istanbul Sofra

I agree totally and frequently eat there as the food is fabulously fresh and unusually prepared.. the owner is gracious; making each visit feel like a welcome to his own home..
