Underground dining in pittsburgh?

Anyone know of any underground restaurants/ supper clubs in Pittsburgh?

  1. Chef Sousa did 3-4 last year before Salt opened, but no other chef seems to have taken up that mantle, best I can tell.

    Will be interested to see any comments here.

    If none exist, we may have to host one soon. We could use the business :-)

        "We" are just a coffeehouse. But we've done a couple of successful one-off Latin-themed brunches for special events. Not much of a kitchen to work with so menu planning is a challenge.

          Well, PG, if you need any "test candiates" I would be happy to take one for the team... hahah

            Are "we" anywhere in the East End? We would like to check "we" out.

          Dunno if it would work out there but could be worth a shot. You can get some press on it probably.

          I don't think it's wrong for PG to be known on here but I'd better not make that choice for him.

            This thready quickly got my attention...

              Very interested....thought about it and have discussed with friends in the business. I have been to many underground dinners...Cleveland, Chicago, NYC, Paris. Always terrific!

            2. I did a non profit competitive cooking league for a while. It was pretty cool and lots of fun to either compete or judge (basically, if you weren't competing you were judging). But we ran out of steam when I moved out of the city and the other guy running it with me took a job in the industry.

              We do still talk about it, so if we ever get it up and running again, I'll update.

              1. I'm kinda intrigued. what exactly is underground/supper clubs??
