Discover local fare at Pittsburgh Restaurant Week’s 2015 Winter Celebration, where you can savor new dishes and great eateries without breaking the bank. Celebrating “New Dishes for the New Year,” Restaurant Week’s semi-annual winter edition showcases the wide variety of dining options that Pittsburgh has to offer, drawing patrons from all around the city and surrounding areas.

For its 2015 showcase, the culinary celebration spotlights unique local restaurants and invites diners to enjoy new and innovative dishes and fine dining. All participating restaurants will offer three-course fixed-price meals or specials that range in price from $20.15 to $35.15. So whether you’re a city, suburban or rural dweller, head into Pittsburgh to stroll the business districts and enjoy unique and accessible meals.

Participating restaurants—which span many city neighborhoods—include everything from Butcher and the Rye, Arpino Trattoria, Avenue B, Seviche and Tender, Cioppino, Habitat, Isabela On Grandview, Meat & Potatoes, Root 174 and Verde Mexican Kitchen & Cantina (and many more!).

Newly expanded for Winter 2015, participating restaurants now have the option to extend their week-long celebration to include extra bonus days. Also new this year is a special preview weekend running January 9-11th, an invitational food blogger dinner and a private Wrap Party with participating restaurant owners and chefs.

Don’t miss Restaurant Week’s festive dish-preview Kickoff Party (purchase tickets) on January 8th, from 6 to 8 p.m., at the Pittsburgh Opera in the Strip. Attendees will eat for a cause at the kickoff bash, which supports Animal Friends via charity raffles.
