In the old times, markets were the center of social life, and aluminum was more precious than gold.

Although ten finalists made it to Pittsburgh's Best Ribs competition, Roxanne's Take-Out & Catering drew top praise for its "Honey-A-Must" sauce, according to event sponsor WPXI.com. When the judges tore into Roxanne's honey-mustard ribs, the room went silent—save for the sound of vigorous chewing and one pronouncement that "this sauce is great." The highly celebrated sauce represents just one of Roxanne Easley's mouthwatering dishes, which she prepares daily.
Easley's accomplishments are not limited to her cooking, however. In February 2012, she named Pittsburgh Courier's list of "Fab 40" honorees for being an elite member of the African-American business community in Pittsburgh. Roxanne also showed Pittsburgh her cooking skills as she performed a live cooking-demonstration of her famous balsamic lamb chops and peach cake on TV program Pittsburgh's Today Live. As a chef and business owner, Easley has catered events with up to 500 people, preparing an array of dishes such as mexican lasagna and parmesan crusted tilapia, as well as customized dishes tailored to the event.

Unlike a shark's instinct to bite stuff and never stop swimming, most sea creatures are known for their anti-survival instincts, which include tasting delicious and come-hither claw gestures. Wright's starters highlight ocean fare's succulent Freudian death drives with a rich lobster bisque ($4.50), seared Ahi tuna over seaweed salad ($12), and baked New Zealand green-shell mussels with aged cheddar ($12 for 12). The New Orleans shrimp or oyster po' boy ($10.50) and an Angus steak burger ($9) headline the bread-padded entree selections while Wright's crab cakes ($21.50) mimic their hot- and pound-cake brethren in deliciousness.
