Heard there are plenty of new places popping up in the downtown area. Anyone try any of them? New Japanese restaurant, brewpub....?

The Tomato Bistro and Grill isn't quite a "brewpub", but it has a great atmosphere. They really did something great with that building, which was once a dive bar. There is plenty of parking next to it, and a nice, large deck out back. The menu isn't your typical stuff, though there are burgers. We just stopped for a brew and didn't have anything to eat, but the food we saw coming out looked great. We will definitely go back and try it. It is right off Main St. (Spring St.), where the Pittston firehouse is.

No. It's off Spring, right next to the Tomato Festival Lot.
It's bar food. But a little pricey. $10+ for a burger, but it was good. They have a huge beer selection with about 20-25 on tap.

Fuji has good fresh Sushi. I've only taken out there for lunch.

Annie, the Tomato Bistro is owned by the guys who had the River Street Ale House that was flooded last year. The food at River Street was not run of the mill. I don't know what they're doing at the new place.

I've been there once and it was very good!
A little pricey, there menu is a la carte ( you have to pay extra for a side and a salad with your entree), that is how it gets a little pricey.
You can see there menu here

Seems very packed every weekend, so you may need reservations.

It's truly impressive the major leaps and bounds Pittston has been striding as of late. I predicted its equidistance to both Scranton and Wilkes-Barre would pay off eventually, and the new lofts, condos (the tower on the riverfront will be starting shortly), trendy bistros and bars, galleries, art walks, etc. are evidence of this. I'm friends with a city official who also made me swoon (non-romantically) when he revealed that the city is working to become an LGBT-friendly haven in NEPA by proposing equal rights legislation. Pittston has certainly come a long way since I left in 2009. I'd have to hazard a guess to say property values in Pittston have probably risen more rapidly from 2009-2013 than from 2000-2009. I'll be in town next month and am really looking forward to scoping the place out.
