A Shopping and Eating Guide to Pittsburgh’s Strip District
A Shopping and Eating Guide to Pittsburgh's Strip District
By Rossilynne Culgan. Though it is a small section of the city, this half-mile of land is full of character from dive bars to dance clubs, coffee shops to museums, and kitschy shops to markets. To get the full Strip District experience, plan to spend an entire weekend day or more in this neighborhood. Grab a coffee at La Prima Espresso Co. Worth the wait, the steak burger and the Camarones shrimp with garlic, rosemary, lemon, and olive oil are stand-out items and the restaurant is BYOB with no corkage fee. Affiliated with the Smithsonian Institution, Heinz History Center chronicles years of regional history. Art-lovers should check out the Society for Contemporary Craft , which presents the work of local, national, and international artists.
