Pittsburgh Dining

  • Muriel's
  • Muriel's

    This charming Art Deco-ish venue offers lively updates of local favorites, including crab cakes, steak and ravioli, with the addition of southwestern American and Asian flavors. Among the appetizers the addition of barbecued pulled pork, with a delicately spicy, agreeably sweet sauce, made the nachos a signature dish. Muriel's offers eclectic cuisine prepared by a thoughtful kitchen and delivered with gracious service.
