Re: “Jozsa Corner

I started off going to write a really bad review because I really didn't like the food. And as for atmosphere, this place is a hole in the wall, literally. There is a hole punched through the wall from the entrance (which looks like an old bar) to the room where you eat . You have to squeeze through the kitchen area also to get to the room with the tables.Our party of 3, were the only customers in the place for Saturday at lunchtime so I'm not sure if that affected the food that was served. I have to say that the bread that was served was great, chewy, crusty and warm. The second serving was a homemade chicken soup that was also great tasting but was full of bones. If you have children don't let them have the soup unless you check it first and carefully. Some of the bones were very small. The next was halushki which was ok, but very greasy. Then some kind of potato dish with paprika and vinegar.I didn't like this sour dish at all. then came pork and sauerkraut, chicken and noodles, both of which I had to ask what it was because the meat was just a condiment in these. There was no meat pieces bigger than your fingernail.Somewhere in the mix a cucumber salad was served and it was wonderful. Nothing was served fresh, except the bread, everything was pre made and heated up for our meal. For this meal we were charged $20 each, and mostly our food was cabbage, noodles (not homemade) and canned sauerkraut flavored with meat bits and paprika but there was lots of it. I admit that I don't know much about Hungarian food so I looked up multiple web sites for Hungarian recipes and what was made seems authentic and I'm sure that his grandmother had to use little meat to make ends meet, but I would have liked it better
to have less food with better quality food.

Re: “Sonoma Grille

sonoma grill is a very sophisticated restaurant with delicious food and a spectacular wine selection. Escape cold and grey pittsburgh and escape to a california inspired atmosphere!

Re: “Sonoma Grille

Sonoma Grille is a fantastic place to eat downtown. The portions are a bit small, but they are delicious. My favorite is the Morrocan Lamb ravioli, it's so tender and perfectly spiced. Their drinks are also wonderful, especially a drink called "Lefty" with cucumber in it. It was cool and refreshing, and didn't taste like it had a ton of alcohol in it.

I will definitely be back soon!

Re: “Cafe Zinho

Cafe Zinho is a little gem. Their menu is small but interesting and--well--it tastes good, everything always tastes good. It has one big, unfortunate drawback: because it's housed (!) in a former garage, and redecorated with a tin ceiling--it's very noisy. It's also cozy and fun and an unfailingly good feed. Casey
