Chick-fil-A

Chick-fil-A, with multiple locations in the Pittsburgh area, has introduced a new lineup of grilled-chicken entrees.

Chick-fil-A invested seven years of testing and more than $50 million to reinvent its grilled chicken recipe.

The new grilled chicken sandwich is a boneless, 100 percent pure-breast-meat chicken, marinated with a special blend of seasonings and grilled for a tender and juicy backyard-grilled taste. It is served on a new toasted, multigrain bun with green-leaf lettuce and tomato and served with a side of honey-roasted barbecue sauce.

The grilled chicken club sandwich adds a kick of flavor with colby-jack cheese and applewood smoked bacon.

Grilled nuggets, which were first introduced in 2012 as a Kid's Meal entree, have been reinvented and offer the new grilled flavor in bite-sized pieces of pure boneless breast of chicken.

Chick-fil-A's new grilled chicken recipe also enhances the chain's line of other grilled-chicken entrees, including the grilled market salad, grilled-chicken cool wrap and chicken salad sandwich.

The Yard

A new restaurant is coming to Bellefonte Street in Shadyside.

David Ondik told members of the Shadyside Action Coalition recently that he plans to open The Yard, a “meat and potato”-type restaurant featuring higher-quality hamburgers and foods, sometime in mid-May. The site has housed several restaurants, including Pasta Piatto, which closed in 2003, and most recently Pangea.

“About 80 percent of our business will be food but we also plan to offer craft beers,” he said.

Ondik, who also owns Coach's Bottleshop & Grille in the Banksville Plaza on Banksville Road, said The Yard will operate seven days a week from noon to midnight. It will employ about 20 people.
