Pittsburgh Eats: Park Bruges

Park Bruges was one of the first restaurants I visited when I decided to move to Pittsburgh. It was Mother’s Day and my mom had come with me to Pittsburgh to look at an apartment in Highland Park. We got there early, so we decided to pop around the corner from the apartment for lunch. We found Park Bruges on Bryant Street and loved it. (Side note: I ended up moving into that apartment and falling in love with Highland Park all together, but that’s a post for another day.)

Park Bruges is a relatively small restaurant and it’s usually packed for dinner, so it’s best to come early or for lunch. They also fill up for brunch on the weekends. I’ve never been for brunch, but I’ve heard it really good.

The menu is French inspired with things like poutine and mussels, but they also have more American foods like a gourmet grilled cheese and a hamburger.
They have the best Mediterranean platter on their appetizer menu. It comes with two kinds of hummus, veggies and different breads. They also have really good salads and the best champagne vinaigrette.

The prices aren’t super cheap, but not overly expensive either. It makes a nice spot for a lunch with friends or a date night with your significant other.
