Pittsburgh is having a real food renaissance. My favorite restaurants included Butcher and the Rye and Bar Marco. We also visited two food incubators, the Smallman Galley and the Federal Galley, which was beautifully designed. I love the concept of food incubators because the restaurant industry is notoriously difficult to enter, and incubators showcase new restauranteurs while offering an easier path to entry. Also, we went to Picklesburgh, an annual festival featuring all thing pickles. And I LOVE pickles. Next time though, I think I’ll pass on the pickle ice cream and pickle beer. I might opt for a pickle-rita though.
