We have finally resurfaced from all of the amazing food we had at Pittsburgh Magazine‘s Best Restaurants Party. There was an enormous amount of food to try and we tried a pretty substantial amount. Here is what we thought: We all agreed that the best dish of the night came from Eleven: Asparagus Salad with rhubarb vinaigrette, duck tasso and salt cured foie grais. We also loved the Caramelized Onion and Goat Cheese Tart from Wild Rosemary.Now, here is what we thought about the rest: Julie: Anywhere I get to wear a party dress and walk around like I’m important… Read More →
I know… gnocchi and coleslaw together sounds disgusting, but this recipe is fantastic!! This is a recipe that my aunt got at a Giant Eagle from one of those sample ladies.
