Astronaut cooks have made numerous attempts to wrangle hamburgers into space-ready meals, from dehydrated-pickle disks to vacuum-sealed burger bottles. Enjoy what our starry-eyed brethren never can with today’s Groupon: for $17, you get $37 worth of burgers, grill fare, and drinks at Braddock’s American Brasserie, located in the Renaissance Pittsburgh Hotel in the middle of the Cultural District.
Blending classic Pittsburgh cuisine with European undertones, Braddock’s sidekicks savory burgers with elegant desserts and equally refined décor. Burgers are served at Braddock’s American Brasserie during lunch, from 11 a.m.–2 p.m., and at Braddock's Streetside bar daily until 11 p.m. Opt for the molten decadence of the cheeseburger ($9.50) or send taste buds on an epicurean expedition to discover beef bacon dwelling within the red-pepper marmalade and fontina of the Braddock's burger ($12), then carve through french-vanilla ice cream atop the apple tart tatin ($10). The menu is resplendent with such dinner fare as seared Atlantic salmon ($23), whose warm concerto of flavors soars among Braddock's high ceilings, warm wood trimmings, and intimate black leather booths.
