The Eagle Food and Beer Hall is bringing its popular franchise to Pittsburgh soon. The restaurant specializes in fried chicken, south sides, and craft beer, as well as a blues soundtrack. While COVID precautions are still in place, Eagle employees undergo a wellness check before each shift and complete a cleaning checklist every 30 minutes.

First pizza chef
8 Market square, city center. pizzaioloprimo.com
After the purchase by the Ron Sofranko Group, Pizzaiolo Primo will reopen and will be available for take-away in mid-April. Eating in the house is scheduled to resume on May 1st. The pandemic forced this restaurant to close its doors in December, but with the buyout, the restaurant will return with most of its original staff, according to a press release. Soon Pittsburghers will be able to enjoy their Neapolitan cuisine again, which includes pizza, pasta and Italian wines.


Pigeon bagels
5613 Hobart St., Squirrel Hill. pigeonpgh.com
The popular bagel shop is launching a new promotion to celebrate the addition of Yiddish to Duolingo’s language courses. On April 6th between 7:30 am and 2:30 pm you arrive in Pigeon and say “ken ikh hubn a baygl with shmirkeyz”, which means in Yiddish for “I want a bagel with Schmear”. No matter how you pronounce it, it will result in a free bagel. The bagel shop is closed for Passover and will reopen on April 6th.

Brew four points
919 Western Ave., North Side. fourpointsbrewing.com
Four Points has opened a new location on the north side. Just down the street from 412 Brewery and Nickys Thai Kitchen in Allegheny West, this place will bring out the same beers that Four Points are known for at their home base in Charleroi. The North Side location currently only sells cans to take away so you can have a few beers and relax at home. The brewery is launching three new cans, two of which are special releases. So you can look forward to something special.

Grist House Craft Brewery

The mixture offers flavors of berries, melons, citrus fruits and stone fruits. At 7.0% ABV, it really packs a punch. Grist House will also be releasing Lucid Manatee Double IPA on March 31st, followed by Morning Feels Coffee and Tea Ale and Parrot Party Dessert Sour on April 2nd.
