Marisqueira Mediterranean Bistro
When first opening Marisqueira, seasoned restaurateur Claudio Pereira wanted to model his newest culinary investment after his father’s south-side eatery, Mallorca, notes the Pittsburgh Business Times. In doing so, Claudio aspired to churn out high-quality, authentic Mediterranean meals just like his dad. Today, Pereira has achieved that goal, transforming fresh seafood and top cuts of veal and chicken into traditional Portuguese feasts, from lunchtime sandwiches made from perfectly spiced pork and steak, to elegant dinners of veal and stuffed lobster. White-clothed tables hoist fresh-cut flowers, and waiters careen through the romantically lit eatery donning bow ties, according to a glowing review by the Pittsburgh Tribune’s Laura Lenk, who notes that “the most striking features of the restaurant are certainly in the details.”
Part of the charm is an extensive list of specials, offering patrons chances to try many different kinds of fish and traditional Portuguese fare.Laura Lenk, Pittsburgh Tribune, 10/12/11
What comes out of the kitchen...is diverse, engaging and consistently high quality. Its Portuguese menu is the real dealAngelique Bamberg and Jason Roth, Pittsburgh City Paper, 1/4/12
