Near the peak of Mount Washington sits a small and unassuming Tudor building. Aged wooden crossbeams hug its stucco walls, lending it the appearance of a solitary cottage that would not look out of place in the Pennsylvanian countryside. The Georgetowne Inn, however, is not as rural as its exterior might suggest. Its windows look out on a view of the Pittsburgh skyline—that twinkling mass of buildings that rises from the intersection of the Allegheny and Monongahela rivers.
This dramatic view of downtown Pittsburgh meets its culinary match in specialties such as broiled mushroom caps stuffed with lumps of crab and tender filet mignon topped with slow-melting maître d'hôtel butter. These tender entrees lead into desserts of pecan ball and peach melba—the latter of which was named for opera singer Nellie Melba, whose high-pitched soprano could famously split open the stone seed of a peach.
