Even Sports Illustrated is praising Pittsburgh food
Sports Illustrated finally got the word. Pittsburgh isn't just a great sports town, it's a great food town too.
Writer Andy Staples visited the Burgh for the magazines "SI Eats" series and boldly went where no one had gone before — single-handedly downing the $50 Asado Platter at Gaucho Parrilla Argentina in the Strip District.
In a story posted Sept. 11, he also gave high praise to the Industry Public House North Fayette location — "a hip restaurant with a carefully crafted menu and excellent cocktails in a place that's actually convenient" — along with its boar bacon appetizer.
Maybe best of all, he made a late-night Sheetz run, where he went down the MTO rabbit hole and came out with a brat, pretzel bun, chili, jalapenos, a burger and fries, "a meal fit for a king" at only $11.
Welcome to the club, Andy — or should we say the "shclub"?
