Monday, August 10th, Brian McCollum (Founder of Pittsburgh Restaurant Week) hosted the Summer 2015 Pittsburgh Restaurant Week Blogger Dinner at The Grand Concourse! I was particular excited to converse with the Pittsburgh Bloggers, and dine at a classic Pittsburgh restaurant!

Pictured above is my complimentary Framboise cocktail; this was heavenly!

Summer Chopped Salad

The salad was the highlight of the whole dinner! Besides mixed greens, it also contained: grilled peaches, walnuts, pecans, blackberries, and goat cheese. Talk about summer on a plate! 😀

Coconut Curried Vegetables

This dish reminded me of a vegetarian Pad Thai; it was sooooooo good!

Media Luna
Media Luna: chocolate-dipped croissant, filled with an almond pastry cream, with raspberry sauce drizzled on top

Do I really need to say much more? This was chocolate and pastry heaven on a plate!

 

*I chose all Pittsburgh Restaurant Week menu options. The only item that I did not see on the regular summer menu was the Summer Chopped Salad.

 

All in all, a sophisticated dinner, in an elegant restaurant, surrounded by friends = a good night!

 

Cheers to good food & health,
