Locally sourced cheese is always preferable to moon cheese, which was found to have dangerously high levels of Buzz Aldrin's brain waves. Enjoy a fresh, earthbound meal with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of American fare at Local Bar + Kitchen.
Local Bar + Kitchen serves up a menu of American grill fare crafted from locally sourced breads, vegetables, and meats that earned the restaurant the title of Best New Bar in Pittsburgh Magazine's 2011 Best of the 'Burgh poll. Before embarking on feasts, diners can warm up appetites with pierogies ($9) that are hand-stuffed in McKees Rocks by disembodied mittens. The signature Geno's meatball linguini flaunts house-made tomato-basil sauce ($12), and the barbecue pulled-pork sandwich adds a zesty edge to its tender filling with fried shallots ($9). Chefs craft the buffalo-chicken pizza by loading a hand-tossed crust with french fries sourced in Somerset and cheese from Monroeville's Turner Dairy Farms before slipping the pie into a wood-fired oven ($13.50 for an entree size). On weekends from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the restaurant slings eclectic brunch fare, such as coffee-dusted flatiron steak accompanied by eggs ($9) or french toast ($8.50), which is stuffed with caramelized banana to weed out baboons disguised as wait staff.
Local Bar + Kitchen's warm fare meshes with its no-frills, industrial-style interior, where sun-soaked brick walls, exposed ceiling beams, and rustic gears transport guests to a bygone era. Diners can also opt to climb up to the restaurant's huge rooftop deck, where TVs entertain carousers with sports or long-winded anecdotes about digital conversion, and free WiFi keeps laptops company as their owners sip Pittsburgh-brewed craft beers (alcohol not included with this Groupon).
