Best Place for Devonshire Sandwich Pittsburgh
- brieflunchcounter Apr 5, 2007 10:45 AM
Am heading to Pittsburgh in a few days and would like to taste that Pittsburgh classic, the Devonshire sandwich. Any recommendations on the restaurants that turn out a great Devonshire?
When I was quite young, my grandmother often took me to The Plaza restaurant
in the Forrest Hills Plaza for amazing turkey Devonshire’s. A fellow chowhound reported the establishment closed last summer. : (
My 2nd recommendation would be the
413 S Craig St
Pittsburgh, PA 15213-3708
My final recommendation would be to try
1100 S Braddock Ave
Pittsburgh, PA 15218-1238
I work in a restaurant as the chef and I can make a killer DEVONSHIRE But I make mine in a dish with toast points fresh sliced turkey toped with bacon and broccolli then topped with a zesty cheeder cheese sauce.
Wanted to bring this back up. There used to be a great place in Cranberry - DeVoss (or something like that - it's where the Primanti Bros. is now) - that made an amazing turkey devonshire. Sadly, they're long closed.
Just wanted to see if Union Grill and Dunning's were still the place to go, or if any newcomers/old favorites are floating around.
I just have to say ... yes! Absolutely brilliant in almost every way. Nice thick slices of moist turkey, ripe tomato, and decent bacon, all on a grilled piece of Italian (possibly even sourdough) bread, smothered in a creamy cheese sauce. My only complaints, and these are minor, are that the bacon could be thicker and the whole dish could spend a little more time under the broiler. Other than that, this is simply a wonderful dish, albeit a dish that one should partake in no more than once or twice yearly.
