PITTSBURGH, PA - When it comes to fine dining in Pittsburgh, there is plenty to look forward to in 2020. Here are just some of the restaurants expected to open in the new year:

  • Saint Johannes and Bambina

Where: Smithfield Street, Downtown

What to expect: The owners of The Vandal in Lawrenceville will attempt two themes in this 2,600-square foot space in the historic Pitt Building. Bambina will be a lunchtime sandwich shop, while Saint Johannes will have a supper club atmosphere.

Where: Grant Street, Downtown

What to expect: A menu offering all-day breakfast and lunches, as well as a bar with weekday happy hour.


Where: East Ohio Street, North Side

What to expect: The same incredible Belgian waffles and homemade fried chicken that's offered by the food truck of the same name, only in a bricks and mortar location. The fare has no added hormones, antibiotics or steroids.

  • Oakmont Barbecue Company

What to expect: Duckpin bowling and pinball will be among the entertainment attractions of a new craft beer bar planned for the former Tilted Kilt space. Shorty's will include a large outdoor riverfront street food space that will be covered and heated for year-round operation.

  • The Eagle Food and Beer Hall

Where: Penn Avenue, Downtown
What to expect: The Eagle's menu is highlighted by all-natural chicken that is brined, dredged, then cooked in custom-built fryers. It's served with house-made hot honey. The Eagle also specializes in southern sides, craft beer, cocktails and blues music.
