The excellent cuisine of Pittsburgh favorite, Baum Vivant, in a smaller, more relaxed atmosphere. – The Scene
The back wall is painted with the restaurant's logo, tables and chairs appear to be Goodwill and flea-market finds, yet the space is good looking. Also attractive are the people of all ages who frequent the place. If you're lucky, you might get the single table in the back "art room," which features very bad reproductions of very good paintings.
The menu is eclectic, serving moderate portions of unusual dishes for both lunch and dinner. The roast garlic and tomato bisque with dill is a delicious first course. Everyone seems to enjoy the shrimp cake with toasted macadamia nuts, coconut milk, lime and Dijon mustard sauce, as well as the steamed mussels. Another dish of note is the chicken liver mousse pate.
Great food, not great service – The food here is excellent (I would recommend the pork medallions) and the decor is in a pleasing Bohemian style. However, the service is very slow and the wait staff seems indifferent to their customers; the restaurant may want to go for a casual atmosphere, but it comes across as so casual as to be almost uncaring. Whatever you do, don't get the table set right by the front desk - the staff will stand around and hold loud conversations only two feet from you!
