What You'll Get
Hunger, unlike ambulance sirens, meningitis, and restraining orders, is not something you can safely ignore. Answer the mighty call of a bellowing belly with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of contemporary American fare and drinks at Walnut Grill in Shadyside.
Walnut Grill offers refined menus loaded with eclectic comestibles for dinner, lunch, and Sunday brunch. The house specialty is the walnut-crusted salmon ($19), a divine delectable resting atop bread pudding, drizzled in apple buerre blanc, and complemented by sautéed vegetables. Crusaders of the carnivore tribe will enjoy the Colorado lamb shank ($21) with vegetables and mashed potatoes, or the pork ribeye ($21) with ham and black bean cassoulet. Beat the red-meat kick with a salad of mixed greenery dressed in a sexy little number of roasted beets, tomatoes, and goat cheese with an appetite-whetting vinaigrette ($9). The entire menu extends longer than the shelf life of a diamond-plated pickle, offering a generous selection of sandwiches, salads, burgers, pasta, and more.
Executive chef Rob Leach and his master staff of seven kitchenaires have been churning out fresh, inventive dishes for six years at Walnut Grill. Cheer on these fastidious foodies as they prepare upward of 200 dinners a night in the 95-seat open-kitchen dining room, or relax in a curved booth among soothing blue hues and debate the relative crotchetiness of Samuel Johnson and Harold Bloom.
Walnut Grill's executive chef was recently featured in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. Twenty Yelpers and TripAdvisors give the Walnut Grill an average of three stars. 71% of UrbanSpooners like the Walnut Grill.
