Neat report. But, did you really have to post a picture of the interior of Pennsylvania Macaroni Company? I mean, really? Now I'm dying for some of what they call cavatelli stuffed with spinach and gorgonzola.

Glad you had the Primanti's experience.  Last time we were in the Strip we were going to meet Michael's grandson at Primanti's.  NOT!  As we were driving by looking for a parking space we saw at least 50 people on the sidewalk waiting to get in.  We had lunch at Wholey's which was very good, but I had my taste buds all set to dive into a Primanti sandwich.  We didn't even go into Penn Mac Co. because last time we spent nearly $100 so it's dangerous.  At Wholey's I got myself a nice thick tuna steak, Michael got mahi to bring home.  Last time it was fabulous sea scallops.  We love the Strip!

I love showing off The Strip to out of town guests.

My favorite lunch on the Strip is Enrico's.  Next to/behind the famous biscotti bakery they have a small restaurant that does sandwiches, wood-fired oven pizzas and a daily special or two for lunch. I highly recommend it! (Though, it won't be anything like Primanti's...)

Oh so late to the party.... thank you thank you to Buffetbuster for posting this.
I hugely enjoyed meeting your girlfriend... and yes, I would still go back and have more from Pierogies Plus. Delicious!

Before you arrived in town, I was wondering whether or not you had Polish food or pierogies in particular before.  Either way, so glad that you enjoyed it.

Boy, BB, you sure know how to treat a lady.  The places you went to are exactly the same as I would go for an out of town guest.  My favorite Primanti is the sweet sausage. 
 
I have tried to find the Union Grill & must drive past it.  I sometimes have a hankering for a turkey devonshire.  I make the one from the Park Schenley but there are times that I want to try someone else's.  You know how everything is better than the one you make.  I have friends coming from Kokomo & will be taking them to the said restaurants but not all at once.  Can't handle that much food at once.

Glad you approve of where we took cecif.  There are so many good options available, it can be hard to choose.  Had it been earlier in the day and Wholey's had still been open, we would have undoubtedly ended up there, too.
 
Yeah, Union Grill can be hard to miss.  And considering it is in the heart of Oakland, parking can be a real problem.  I usually end up pull into the lot for the Carnegie Museums.
