The Union Grill on Craig Street in the Oakland area of Pittsburgh has been a long time favorite of mine. It's informal, open air in the summer, they have a nice friendly bar in middle of the restaurant, but what attracts me to the Union is the food. I've had a number of meals here over the years and they have always been good.
One of my favorite Pittsburgh foods is Turkey Devonshire. For those of you that are not familiar, Turkey Devonshire is usually bread, turkey, slices of tomato, bacon and then topped with a light cheese sauce. The Union Grill makes one of the best. Fresh roasted turkey, fresh tomato's, and a fantastic cheese sauce recipe makes this devonshire terrific.

The Burgh (as the locals call it) is loaded with unique and unusual foods. The home of chipped ham, (yes, chipped) steaks cooked "Pittsburgh Rare," Pirmanti's Brothers sandwiches, church's that cook and serve periogies and monster size fish sandwiches and many other local specialities. I'll talk about all of these as time allows, but now I'm getting hungry!
Now I know that this city can't compete with the culinary offerings of some of our larger city's on the coasts, but I just don't care! I like to go to some of the more popular food forums like Chowhound, Roadfood and a few others, but they just don't capture the spirit of this great area. I'm talking about unique, enjoyable, fun, and social eating.
I'd like to start some discussions on favorite local food and drink finds, and get all of your ideas on these and other subjects...Maybe even meet a couple of local foodies! Feel free to leave your comments!!
