Mission Mahi Review – A Food Truck Turned Restaurant in Cranberry

Mission Mahi started off as a food truck serving loaded “tacos” to hungry Pittsburghers. After driving the truck around the city for several years, they expanded to a dedicated restaurant in Cranberry where they now sling their staples in addition to the roaming truck.

But as it turns out, the mission part of Mission Mahi is an incredible story in its own right- one I learned more about when visiting the restaurant for a trusty meal.

This restaurant is located right off the turnpike at the Donegal exit, and is one of those places we've passed many times while traveling from home to Ohiopyle and other nearby attractions.

It took me many, many years, but I finally stopped for this one and now regret not visiting sooner.

Southern Tier Pittsburgh Offers an Array of Options on the North Shore

Southern Tier Pittsburgh is one of a handful of breweries that did not originate in the city but expanded here due to the producer's popularity in the region.

Originally from New York, this brewery expanded into Pittsburgh in early 2017 and has been a popular spot in the North Side ever since. While we are often frequent visitors to this brewery for the beer, we were recently invited out as guests of the brewery to try more and to sample a bit of the food menu as well.

As a result, this guide to the brewery was born!

Every so often we'll open our mouths and say that we need more wine bars in Pittsburgh, and whenever we do one seems to open the following week.

This was the case for Spill, a wine bar that opened in Pittsburgh's Bloomfield neighborhood in early 2019. Naturally, I rushed over to it during their soft opening to try it out as quickly as possible- and I was hooked.

The Boulevard Lounge Offers a New Bar Theme at the Distrikt Hotel

The Distrikt Hotel Pittsburgh has featured a high-end cocktail bar since opening in late 2017. But in early 2019, the hotel re-themed the bar to be known as The Boulevard Lounge (an apt name for its location on Boulevard of the Allies).

With a new cocktail menu and an enhanced (but still limited) food menu, you know we had to make it down to this one as soon as we heard about the change.

While we had to miss the food items on our first visit, the cocktails are everything we expect from this stellar bar, and we'll be coming back for more very, very soon.
