Pittsburgh Roadfood get together Mon, 01/11/10 3:29 PM (permalink)
Sorry this is such short notice, but this Sunday night (January 17th), we are going to have a Roadfood get together at Lo Bello's Spaghetti House in Coraopolis, PA.  For those of you unfamiliar with this little gem of a restaurant, you can read about it in this thread.

I will be there, along with my girlfriend and her daughter.  Travelin Man will also be in Pittsburgh and will be joining us. 
 
All are welcome!  The only thing I ask, is that you let us know ahead of time that you will be attending, so that we can make sure the restaurant can accomodate us.  Please respond below if you are interested.  Hope to see you there!

              Are you saying that you won't be making the 13 1/2 hour drive from Minneapolis to join us?

                  Keep in mind, they speak a foreign language in Pittsburgh called Pixburghese.

                        I probably should have kept the Travelin Man stuff to myself, huh?

                          I wrote Kenny Joe, but he will not be able to make it.  Any others interested in joining us?  How about GeoNit?

                            I have other plans for the evening, otherwise I would venture out.  How about a future get together at Moonlight Cafe on Brookline Blvd?

                                    Cliff, if I wasn't already planning to break bread with y'all next month in Charleston, I would give serious consideration to joining you in Pittsburgh tomorrow night. As it is, you'll just have to wait a few more weeks before you can have the pleasure of my company.

                                      Too bad, because you guys would have been fine additions. 

                                      So, right now, we have:

                                      GeoNit

                                      + two

                                      Anyone else?  I will call the restaurant when they open to let them know we are coming.

                                      See everyone at 7:00PM tonight!

                                          Thanks Al!

                                          We did have a small but enthusistic group last night at LoBello's Spaghetti House.  It seems everyone enjoyed the food and the company.  I did take plenty of photos and will eventually do a write up.  Thanks again to everyone for coming!

                                            I don't know anything about the Moonlight Cafe.  Can you please tell us more about the place?
                                              

                                            Buffetbuster: Sorry for the delay in responding. I have been "on the road" for the past few weeks. The Moonlite Cafe has been around for over 30+ years.  I remember when it was called "Joe's Restaurant" in the 1970s.

                                            It is a small wonderful restaurant on Brookline Blvd (a few doors before Kribel's Bakery) that lures patrons from all around.

                                            Here is their website with menu;

                                            http://www.moonlitecafe.com/

                                            Their "Mountain o' Fried Zucchini" is among the best in Pittsburgh. It is light and not greasy. I enjoy their pasta dishes, sandwiches and their daily specials. Their portions are huge and often I just split an appetizer and an entree with a friend.

                                            They do take reservations, which I highly recommend if your party is more than six.

                                              I just looked at the Moonlight's menu. That Chicken Pizzaiolo sounds really tasty.
