Butcher and the Rye is one of the hottest restaurants in Pittsburgh, and guess where it is? Downtown!
We've always thought that this is one part of the city that needs more unique restaurants, and hearing about people going downtown just to eat is welcomed news.
In fact, so many people are trying to eat at Butcher and the Rye that it is quite difficult to get a reservation. We tried for weeks to get a table on a Saturday night that worked with our schedules, and after trying for quite some time we were finally able to get in at 9PM by calling just over a week in advance.
Not knowing when we'd make it back and that reservations are hard to come by, we went all out.
