Calamari Mata Hari
Our favorite cephalopod all dressed up in a seasoned breading and quickly flash-fried, then tossed in a sweet and spicy chile drizzle of dutch and indian influence.
On the bone as god intended, they're served with celery sticks and ranch or fromage bleu - also as god intended. All are spicy - particularly the nummers - but you just have to ask if you want them hotter than hell and we'll make 'em burn. No splitting' the flavors, no spittin' on the floor, and don't clean yourself up 'til you're finished.
A screaming bright garlic and herb take on the classic argentinian condiment that purportedly brought juan perón to power.
Colombian Gum Nummers
Just Damn Hot Buffalo
Other Fun Things
Not so fun as to be discounted during the happy hour special.

The Macaronis and the Cheeses
So over the past eight or so years we've managed to sell more macaronis and cheeses to lucky pittsburghers than taylor swift has sold spiral perms to pregnant teens. In fall 2010, we classed it up and added our almost-famous lobster mac to rave reviews. So let's roll with a theme, shall we?
Original Hg Macaroni & Cheese
Done right with a cheddary sauce mornay, it's not from a box, and it's big. Really big. 14,453 calories, but no fat, carbs, or protein. More adventurous? Read on, dear gourmand:
Macaronis Et Fromage De Langoustine
It just didn't seem quite right to name this decadent gastroconcoction in english, so we pulled out our high school french. Here our already world-famous macaroni and cheese is prepared with atlantic lobster and lump crab meat.
Mom's Hamburger Helper
How's a half pound of angus ground round that's browned sound? It's sure to astound.

Burghers & Sandwiches
Delmonico a Go Go*
This is the steak sandwich that just might heal a thousand vegetarians. It's so much more than its diluted ancestor from philly who's now served at gas stations. We expertly grill a usda choice delmonico steak, slice it, and place atop sturdy ciabatta roll with grilled onions, peppers, mushrooms, and swiss cheese. Worthy of employing knife and fork, but you can use your hands.
I Can Has Bacon Cheezburgher?*
Rich, smokehouse bacon and sharp, bitey cheddar atop a manhole cover of grilled beef that's more than able to satisfy even the most demanding carnivore. "Simple, bloody perfection," say the critics. We think you'll agree.
The Garden Weasel

Thanksgiving in Blawnox
A turkey burgher just like thanksgiving at granma's. Half a pound of ground turkey (not leftovers) with dried cranberries, sage stuffing, and a little rosemary aioli instead of giblet gravy. We recommend 7 hours of televised sports and a nap after this. Goin' to sears's with mom tomorrow early.
Soups & Salads
Labor-Inducing Vegetarian Chili
Not recommended late in the 3rd trimester. Served with sour cream. Contains no meat, unlike the vegetarian chili that you find in the suburbs.
Cream O' Tomato
Remember walking with your partner to the primary school lunchroom then going single file through the cafeteria line and the smell of the grilled cheese and the nice older ladies in the hair nets filling melamine bowls on the trays with the little round indentation to keep the bowl from slipping that would be steaming with the hot creamy tomato soup that by all means you should hate because it has tomatoes in it and you're supposed to still hate tomatoes and you secretly love but won't admit? Yeah. This is like that, only better.
Soup of the Du Jour
Only 100% free-range, politically-correct, renewable, carbon-neutral, local du jours are used in this special soup. Quiz your server and see if they know what it is today.
Arugula Steak Salad

Spin Spin Sugar
One pimp salad: spinach and a little arugula, roasted beets, craisins, candied pecans, and crumbled goat cheese, custom dressed with a complementary figgy vinaigrette.

Salad De La Burgh

Roasted Vegetable Salad
This is a salad with roasted vegetables on top. Roasting is one of the best ways to treat veggies. Just ask any veggie and they'll tell you! Warm roasted carrots, broccoli, peppers, onions, and brussels sprouts over spring greens with fig vinaigrette.
Cheesecake for Two
To maintain our self respect we have to call this a cheesecake for two just because it would be completely decadent to eat a whole one by one's self, with all its creamy cheesy goodness and an overtone of madagascar vanilla (from the island, not the movie). But of course, we've all done it before. Maybe. We really won't think poorly of you if you eat one all by yourself.
A freshly baked chocolate chip cookie of prodigious diameter served hot out of our easy-bake oven (powered by a 40-watt light bulb) in a lethal cast iron skillet with french vanilla ice cream. Give us a few minutes to make this: mom's baking these to order, and you know how she gets when she's rushed!

Ma Kluczkowski's Polski Lasagnski
What if you took like the best of everything about pierogies and whipped them up lasagne-style? Think of it as a fabulous italian-polish wedding, but without the fistfights. Ma k came up with this 37 years ago in lawrenceville when the people needed something to survive the heat of the mills. This will definitely stick with you well through the end of the game.
Leggo My Huevos
Our gringo-ish take on huevos rancheros, with scrambled chicken eggs atop crispy corn tortillas with frijoles negros, and topped with mexican cheese and ford ranchero sauce.
I Can Has Bacon Cheeseburger?
On a delicious buns quit is a rich smoky bacon and cheddar atop a manhole cover of grilled beef able to satisfy even the most demanding carnivore, unless they're like vegetarian or something. On that we'll put a fried egg that'll in all likelihood dribble yolk down your chin upon initial congress.
Toast like bread that's been heated and browned in an electric appliance. Bacon as crisps a nicely starched shirt back from the cleaners. Sausage as spicy as that strange you dragged in here this morning. Potatoes like starchy half moon rising over the serengeti. And eggs like 70s visual t-shoet metaphors indicating outstanding, perky, nubile, heaving breasts. Yea, just like that.
Count D'monte Carlo
Mmm...ham. The traditional ham and swiss sandwich, fried french toast-style, served with our own bacon jam for slathering. Does chevrolet even make those anymore?

Oh great cooks, having dominion over the fowl and its offspring, with thine hot water and simmering, cricket forth gently two eggs to poach. Bringeth to thine platter a muffin of st. Thomas, cleaved in twain and toasted upon the fire. Beseech swine so divine to begin the begat, then smoked after brine, add a little of that. Anoint these holy ova, great cooks, with thine heavenly hollandaise, for days and days, we shall sing thy praise. A-men. Our bennies are available in two denominations: the episcopalians are traditionally hammy; the unitarians like spinach and tomato.
Burrito Para El Desayuno
That's a breakfast burrito for those of you who didn't pay attention to sesame street. Sausage, eggs, tots, and cheese in bed together in a flour tortilla, with salsa and sour cream on the side.
A personal-size, finger searing hot cast iron skillet full of freshly baked sticky buns, with home fries & bacon of course.
Lox, Stock, and Bagel
You know when you try to make a bagel sandwich with smoked salmon, cream cheese, capers, onions, and whatnot, and then it all falls out and soils your good Sunday trousers? We solved that problem by mixing it all together and made it much less of a laundry challenge.
Macaroni and Cheese

More than just the most recognizable acronym preceding opp, omg, pyt, and rotflman, the blt is a fine sandwich, proven over time. But we've made that even better with the addition of wild salmon on a toasted ciabatta bun and a special rosemary mayonnaise. Plus, it comes with a self-righteous feeling you get when you eat something moderately healthy. Want an egg on it? Just ask.
Salad De La Breakfast
Our pittsburgh staple complete with fries, shredded cheese, a egg, and grilled marinated chicken tenders atop greens that are really only there because you can't eat ranch dressing with a fork.
Greek Quinoa Salad
One banged-uo economy, but a great salad! Now lettuce-free, with the super-grain quinoa, feta, and greek olives, tossed with lemon-herb vinaigrette. Why not have an egg on it, too?
Quickie Salad Chop Chop
Iceberg lettuce and baby mesclun greens, cucumbers, tomatoes, bacon, and many, many more veggies all carved up with grilled chicken, and a balsamic vinaigrette so all you have to do is fork it in. If you add a fried egg we won't chop that.
