What people are saying about Restaurant Gems of Pittsburgh
"Google sucks. Use this instead. Have you ever thought "I am hungry, but too lazy to make food, but also dont know what I want." This book is for you.
What is the first thing you do? You check google for places to eat near you. Then, google gives you the same10 major chains in your area, because most small places dont pay Google's fees for "prime listings"

Trick friends and family into thinking you are a cultured foodie when all you actually need is this cheat sheet."
"Don’t know where to eat? Want something new? This book is the ultimate guide for finding some new restaurants to try. Gives you all the specifics, so you know exactly what expect! All broken down county by county in western Pa."Amazon Review
"5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome for trying new restaurants in Pittsburgh! This is such a great collection of the lesser-known restaurants in Pittsburgh. When you want to try someplace new, grab this book! It's much easier than trying to get recommendations from the same people all the time. It breaks down the restaurants based on county, too, so it's super easy to find a new place. Plus, the photos make everything look so good! I'm hungry just flipping through it! Definitely a must-have for anyone living in the Pittsburgh area!"Amazon Review

My ultimate goal is to help everyday Pittsburghers find hidden restaurant gems that won’t break the bank.
Think of me as your good friend who has tried the best restaurants in and around the city, giving you reviews you know you can trust. That's what this website is all about.
I have written restaurant articles for applications and newspapers, appeared on the radio, just launched my second Pittsburgh restaurant book, and am starting to become well known in the Pittsburgh area as I visit all different types of restaurants from all over the area.
