Recently, I have gone on several Foodie adventures; since I have been a Social Butterfly, it’s been very hard to devote a whole post to each meal. So, why not combine several foodie adventures into one post?
The cocktail above was from one of my first Summer adventures, held at Butcher & The Rye (the second Restaurant by Richard DeShantz, & his business partner Tolga).
Butcher & The Rye comes pretty close, to making focaccia bread as good as the LEGENDARY focaccia bread from The HyeHolde. Soooooo good!
One of THE best salads I’ve EVER had!
As Anthony Bourdain would say: “please order your burger medium rare! It is, after all, your patriotic duty.”
During this brunch, I was lucky enough to meet former co-owner, and manager of Bar Marco, and new Event Coordinator of Studio A.M. & Swing Truck, Bobby Fry! He was such a hospitable host: from his warm welcome, to sharing a bottle of Riesling with us, and giving us a complimentary tour of The Wine Room, he really made this brunch experience at Bar Marco memorable! I’m so grateful to know him; Pittsburgh is lucky to have such a passionate person in the local restaurant industry!
Three Cheers to Summer Foodie Adventures, and Fitness outside in the Summer Sun (whether it be either Yoga in the Square, or a 5k run or walk!)!

A week ago, my Mom & I went to see Birdman at the Galleria mall in Mt. Lebanon. Afterwards, my Mom & I decided to swing by the new BRGR for lunch (which had just opened the day before). I had dined from its food truck a couple of times, and I was eager to try the Galleria location.
Our waiter was Wendy; she was so nice and knowledgeable of the food.
The first picture is the Apple Dumpling Pie Shake (the shake of the day). BRGR makes some of the best shakes around, and this one was no exception! It tasted like an apple pie with caramel sauce. Sooooo good!
I decided to “craft” my own burger- MAN, was this good! I tried to be mindful of my food choices, and choose a healthier option for my burger (to make up for the indulgent shake). Everything from the red picked onions, to the capers aioli and dill pickle, paired well with the salmon burger. I HIGHLY recommend this combo!
The piece-de-resistance: BRGR’s fries with shaved parmesan and truffle oil. Usually, I don’t even both with regular fries; as soon as I see fries on the mention, that’s when I order sweet potato fries. Today, sweet potato fries were not an option. Luckily, I had heard good things about BRGR fries. Thus, I decided to take a chance and order some fries. WOW! I’m so glad I did! I could not stop eating these fries! They were delectable! I was you could’ve seen how sad I was when I reached the bottom of the plate basket (lol). X)
Well, there you have it, folks! If you’re looking for a casual yet high-quality lunch or dinner, I HIGHLY recommend stopping by either one of BRGR’s restaurant locations (East Liberty, Cranberry or Mt. Lebanon) or order from the BRGR food truck! 😀
Three cheers to good food, fabulous art & cultural events,
