A recent tasting menu began with the chicken liver pate, miniaturized portions served in small square ramekins. The gloriously rich spread was balanced with an array of tart, crisp bites: A slice of cornichon, a single baton of pickled carrot, a pristine salad of lightly dressed frisee lettuce ($10 as appetizer).

Taking price out of consideration, I would say 9on9 is the best restaurant in Pittsburgh. The only better one I've been to in the area would be Lautrec, at Nemacolin.

That writer has a tendency to be tough, especially on pricier restaurants, as she should be.

The writeup makes it sound a little more adventurous than I recall, which is what I am looking for if I am paying a premium.
