Why you reading the foodie thread anyway? Go on back to your fast food thread where you belong.

The City Paper offer's up its reviews on Burgatory in Waterworks

Burgatory - Burgatory's burgers are unquestionably in the running for best in town - Taste - Dining Reviews - Pittsburgh City Paper

Know that old joke about Pittsburgh being a great place to be when the world comes to an end, because everything happens here 20 years later? Well, sorry to those who are taking end-of-days refuge here, but we're just not sure whether that's true anymore. Whether because of our status as a post-Rust Belt success story or just thanks to the Internet, when it comes to trends, there's no longer much gap between hearing about cool culture in other cities and getting to experience it in Pittsburgh......

that's unfortunate about golden palace, they had good dim sum, which is rare here. but have you tried china star on mcknight rd? if you like authentic szechuan food, it's tops. they also recently opened a location on murray in squirrel hill, and how lee at forbes & shady recently added a szechuan menu.

of and zaws is amazing of course. orient express in oakland is surprisingly good too.

Default Visited Pittsburgh this past week

We visited Pittsburgh this past week, ate at a few restaurants while also looking at the area. We ate at Soba, had a great meal. Spoon, gorgonzola souffle very good, but main dish miso glazed butterfish and salmon was cold. Sonoma Grill, just ordinary. The Willows, not a very good meal.

Winghart's extending their hours (pre-drinks) is great news.

Looks like I have to make a point of trying Burgatory.

I was glad to read the closing of the culinary school Downtown isn't going to have much impact on the local restaurants in terms of staffing.

The nice thing is because my theater is right over the 16th street bridge, I can run over for lunch, buy some and run back - but call first because they get BUSY.
The sushi is amazeballs, too. Best fish place in town, hands down. Blows Wholey's out of the water. All puns intended.

Let us know what you think. I ordered a med rare burger there and it was dry and well done. Wasn't impressed, but I think most people like the toppings and gimmicks. Sort of like why Ben and Jerry's is such a success. Not really quality, but cool labels and fun flavors with tons of sugar.

I will probably try it again someday because maybe I just went on a bad day, but I don't have high hopes.

I have to agree...the burger was good but on the dry side. The variety of specialty burgers is nice but I wasn't too impressed with the gimmicky "build a burger" thing you see everywhere these days. For the price, I'm not sure how often I'd go back.
