Wharf District Dining:
Falafel, baba ghanoush, stuffed grape leaves—Lebanese Bistro offers traditional Lebanese food in a sophisticated atmosphere with great service at the Wharf District. Choose from a vast wine list and a bevy of vegetarian items or go all out with beef and lamb kebabs over rice. We recommend the falafel—fava beans, chickpeas, parsley, onion, garlic, and Lebanese spices fried and served with tahini sauce (you can also order it as a sandwich).
Tuesday–Thursday, 4–10 p.m.
Friday & Saturday, 11 a.m.–11 p.m.
Sunday, noon–8 p.m.
From the moment you walk into Table 9 your senses are delighted. Eclectic art hangs from turquoise walls, and sun streams in through floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the rail trail. Behind the restaurant’s immaculate bar, an outdoor deck overlooks the Monongahela. While the space alone is worth a visit, the food will keep you coming back. For lunch, take pleasure in filling up on any of this gastropub’s burgers or sandwiches. This Bourbon Steak Flatbread with onion, pepper, provolone, and garlic aioli hits the spot on a winter day. Want a snack you can’t get anywhere else? Try the Devils on Horseback—chocolate-stuffed dates wrapped in bacon. Note: The dinner menu differs greatly, with first and second course options like Sweet and Spicy Shrimp and Grilled Lamb.
