When requests for their showstopping seafood dishes poured in from more friends and family than they could fit inside their kitchen, the Krieger family set up shop inside a roomy Victorian mansion. Today, Ligonier Tavern still serves up crab cakes and ciopinno, as well as burgers made with local grass-fed beef. Diners can pair their meals with a drink from the bar, such as a cocktail made with Knob Creek bourbon, whether they're seated in the restaurant's solarium, its main dining room, or on its second-floor balcony.
Not many people get the chance to dine in a restaurant's wine cellar, but at Vallozzi's, diners can book the underground space for a private dinner or dine in one of four other elegant areas. While enjoying award-winning wines, guests can feast on upscale Italian cuisine in Vallozzi's Classic dining room, which awards the eyes with hand-painted murals and romantic lighting. Alfresco dining options include Casa Elena and the patio, where guests can bask in the breeze without picnicking on an airport runway. Rounding out the quintet of rooms and boasting a handmade maple and olive wood bar, Rosso Bianco blends casual and chic with light-strewn tables, wine racks, and flat-screen TVs.
The Coffee Bean (Greensburg) is a beautifully designed cafe located in Greensburg, Pennsylvania. The Coffee Bean proudly offers Monroe's Coffee which is one of only 4 "USDA Organic Certified" roasters in the state of PA and is hand roasted 10 minutes down the road in Latrobe, PA.
Renovated from a historical train station, DiSalvo's Station Restaurant transports diners to old Italy by way of cobblestone flooring, pitched ceilings, and plates of pasta, seafood, and Sunday brunch. A long stone tunnel ushers patrons into an expansive atrium of tables covered in white linen. A fully restored dining car creates an unforgettable dining experience that will only be matched once the moon starts taking reservations. After meals, patrons can take the stairs or trapdoor chute down to the station's basement, where Joey D's Sala Da Fumo & Retail Shop stocks its shelves with a selection of premium cigars, fine wine, and spirits. A large humidor keeps rolled tobacco leaves moist, and a billiard room lets players work on their geometry. Every Friday night, live music entertains diners with such acts as Bryan Cole, Judi Figel, and The Half Knobs.
Scent is one of the main triggers of memory, so lots of memories arise when people pass by The Cookie Store. Here, bakers pull soft, chewy cookies from the oven, evoking childhood scenes of snack times. Bakers create candy-studded varieties such as Heath toffee, as well as classic recipes such as snickerdoodle and milk chocolate chunk. They even assemble giant cookie cakes frosted with custom messages for special occasions. In addition to cookies, staff use the ovens to bake four styles of brownie, and prepare cold, refreshing drinks such as frozen lemonade, smoothies, and frozen coffee.
Behind the quaint fa?ade of Mama C's Cafe, an impressive menu awaits. Hot from the oven, 18 varieties of specialty pizza include classics such as a margarita, or more unconventional breakfast pizzas topped with eggs, sausage, bacon, and the morning newspaper. The chef's specialties take other forms as well, with the meatball sandwich lined with homemade meatballs and the lasagna with a special "gravy." The menu also shows a non-Italian side with options like chipotle wraps, buffalo chicken salads, and cheeseburgers.
