A classic traditional American eatery on Mt. Washington's "Restaurant row with a view." – The Scene
The downstairs, with two levels to allow all a view of the city, sits about 60, with a private room for 30-60 upstairs. There is a small bar, friendly and intimate, for waiting on busy evenings. A cool retro feature is that when you sit down to dinner, matchbooks with your name printed on the cover are placed at the table.

The Food
Appetizers include fresh oysters, and hard-to-find steak tartar, and delicious stuffed hot peppers. Main courses center around steaks, veal, and seafood with a signature dish of veal LaFayette, prepared with artichoke hearts, mushrooms, and black olives in a marsala wine sauce. The strip steak was also excellent with bread crumbs, garlic and herbs or green peppercorns, heavy cream, and brandy. Shrimp scampi, scallops provencial, lobster tail, and a catch-of-the-day round out the seafood menu.

The Closer
Desserts include a moist carrot cake, and a Pittsburgh tradition: a nut-covered ball of ice cream (walnuts here) served with caramel, chocolate or butterscotch sauce.
