The Grand Concourse

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The restaurant is located in the former Pittsburgh and Lake Erie (P&LE) railroad station. The elegant main dining room is simply breathtaking.

I like their menu as it consists of one page (for me a multi-page menu is a real turn-off) and offers a great variety of seafood and land fare, appetizers, soups, fresh salads and desserts. I find the seafood entrees particularly good here and I frequently order one of their “market fresh” entrees. On this occasion I ordered the seafood trio which consisted of one of their Maryland-style crab cakes, a piece of grilled salmon, and 4 coconut-crusted shrimp. Delicious!!!

The Grand Concourse offers a nice variety of wines from arround the world to accompany your meal. If you need some help with making a selection, just ask your server for some advice. The staff at the Grand Concourse is very friendly and accommodating. My wife is a vegan. She spoke to the chef about her dietary requirements and he prepared a delicious vegetable curry over rice for her. She said it was fabulous.

If you’re looking for an excellent restaurant with a great ambiance while visiting Pittsburgh, I recommend that you try The Grand Concourse. Reservations are recommended.
