We started the night with a bottle of German Reisling. Reisling is my favorite wine. I much prefer white wines, mostly maybe because I like my drinks to be cold and I tend to like sweeter wines over dry wines.
While we drank our wine, we enjoyed the views of the city. These pictures look just like post cards.
This is the point, and shows why Pittsburgh is called the City of Bridges and Three Rivers. The Allegheny river and the Monongahela river meet at the Point to form the Ohio River.
I started with the house salad and asked for the dressing on the side. The dressing was the house Balsamic Vinaigrette.
I had the Portobello Terrine, which is portobello mushrooms with a medley of seasonal vegetables marinated and grilled with Tofu, gently layered and baked with an aged Balsamic and red pepper coulis. On the side was some roasted potatoes and steamed carrots and green beans.
My husband had the Providence Crabcakes, which is described as twin jumbo lump crab cakes breaded in crispy panko breadcrumbs, sauteed and drizzled with red onion marmalade. Steve said these were really good. I try to get him to rank the crab cakes he has had places, but he doesn't like that game much :)
