Bae Bae’s Kitchen Review – Korean Food in Downtown Pittsburgh

Bae Bae's Kitchen in downtown Pittsburgh fills a much-needed niche in the downtown dining scene: quick, delicious food cooked from scratch with a casual but adorable vibe. This cozy little spot adorned with beautiful plants serves up Korean rice, noodle, and salad bowls with a build-your-own concept.

We'd been intrigued by Bae Bae's Kitchen for a while, and we finally found the time to make it in on a cold, windy, grey January day. As soon as we walked in our spirits were instantly lifted by the cheerful plants, cute decor, and all of the inviting smells.

Reliving a Classic with the Pittsburgh Opera’s Hansel and Gretel

Hansel and Gretel is a well-known fairy tale originally written by the Brothers Grimm that has seen many adaptations into other artistic forms over the centuries, including the opera composed by Englebert Humperdink in the late 19th century.

We recently had the chance to take in the Pittsburgh Opera's performance of Hansel and Gretel as guests of the opera, and we have to say, it was an all-around gem: the talented singers and musicians, as well as the playful set design, brought new life to this classic tale.
