Pittsburgh restaurants using pumpkin on their menu?

Hi everyone- its my favorite time of year because pumpkin is in season, yet I'm having trouble finding restaurants that use this ingredient on their menus. Any recommendations on where to find delicious pumpkin dishes in Pittsburgh? More so soups, apps, and entrees - but I'll take dessert recommendations too. Thanks!

      1. I believe Girasole offers pumpkin on their Fall menu. Also, although not a restaurant, I think the Uncommon Market has frozen pumpkin ravioli available.

        733 Copeland St Ste 1, Pittsburgh, PA 15232

        1. This isn't exactly what you asked about, but I thought of this thread yesterday when I was at the Shadyside Market District and saw a jar of their house brand Pumpkin Pasta Sauce.

          I have no interest in pumpkin, so I have no idea how it tastes, but I thought of you when I saw it, so I thought I'd tell you about it.

              I wish I had some specifics more towards Pittsburgh proper, but most of my local restaurants (especially Italian) are offereing pumpkin type dishes. I would immagine most of the Pittsburgh ellite will for sure have some type of offering.
