MYSTERY
THE
MUNCHER WRITES . . .
about dining in Pittsburgh,
Pa... "Emilia Romagna is a
northern Italian restaurant
in the area of the convention
center. Service is leisurely
and they recommend rolled
stuffed veal breast.
"Station Square is a 40-
acre development of offices,
shops and restaurants in the
Pittsburgh and Lake Erie
railroad station. The Grand
Concourse restaurant owned
by Chuck Muer, head of C.E.
Muer Corp., occupies the 80-
year-old train terminal. The
- setting is more spectacular
than the food, which is sim-
ple.
no
has
"Pittsburgh
Chinatown. Jimmy Tsang's
Chinese Restaurant is one of
the better Oriental dining
spots.
"The best French restau-
rant in Pittsburgh is said to
be La Normandie on the
ground floor of an apartment
building. Highlights are foie
gras, truffle soup, Dover sole
and imported duc breast.
"Le Petit Cafe is the most
nouvelle of Pittsburgh's
French restaurants and is
known as a Yuppie hangout
in the middle of the
Shadyside shopping district.
"LeVieux Saigon is an up-
scale Vietnamese restaurant.

-

Other ethnic dining spots are
Sarah's, which offers home-
style Yugoslavian cooking,
Suzie's, featuring traditional
Greek dishes and Un Poco Di
Roma, touted as the best Ita-
lian restaurant around. But
you need directions to find it
and the service is slow.
"You can order one. of 60
wines in the Wine Restau-
rant by the taste or the glass.
Food highlights are the
soups, pates, Wisconsin veal
loin medaillons, Southampton
duckling and baby lamb.
"Robert Bianco, restaurant
critic for the Pittsburgh
Press, gives mixed reviews to
most eating spots in and
around the city.
"Seafood at the Angel's
Corner, located in a small
church, is too heavily pre-
pared with stuffings and
cream sauces, he says. And
the staff is a little overly at-
tentive.
"Born Free, which features
a menu representing coun-
tries from Algerias to South
Africa, exceeds its grasp, says
Bianco, and he can't testify to
the authenticity of the food.
But he concedes that the dis-
hes are different and good —
if you like fish with bananas.
"DeLuca's Italian and
American Restaurant is
Bianco's idea of the best
breakfast in town but he
warns you not to order any-
thing else. Lately, however,
he complains, the chefs have
a disconcerting habit of burn-
ing the French toast. Wait-
resses here, he gripes, are
always harried and usually
in a bad mood. They even
throw straws at annoying
customers, Bianco says."
FROM SEPT. 8 issue of
Forbes Magazine . . . "It's a
fact that many Big Apple res-
taurants are waitered and
waitressed by those waiting
for their break into films or
onto Broadway. The way
working hours are chopped
up in eateries lets them
attend auditions and acting
classes without losing the in-
come they need to stay alive
while awaiting the Big
Break.
"Martin Burdin, the 'Din-
ing' columnist in the New
York Post, writes — 'Kevin.
Bacon, who starred in Foot-
loose, Quicksilver and onstage
in Loot, recalls working as a
waiter. 'I was at Fiorello's
and the All-State Cafe. Being
where the food is, is a plus.
You can live on one solid
meal a day, and chances are
you can eat when you go to
work, and probably take
something home, too. Basics,
like toilet paper.'
"Good Food magazine tells
of the waiter who fumbled
everything at the table until
a patron finally com-
plained:Sir,' the tray-toter
said, 'I'm really an actor, not
a waiter.'
" 'Yeah,' said the diner,
`but this is a restaurant —
not a play about a restau-
rant.' "
