    As a Wintzells virgin this year, I am happy to hear the new place is good.Janet and I shared the oyster combo, which we loved. I had gumbo, and found it excellent. And of course, the oysters! I was chicken to order them, but Al shared and wished I had!

      Thanks so much to lleechef and Michael Hoffman for the invite to join them at Wintzell's last Thursday night.  The food was great, while Lisa and Michael are such fun company.  I am still a little surprised that this food has translated so well from a thousand miles away.

        It was an absolute pleasure. It always is when you two are involved.

          Well, I can shed a little light on why the south hills of Pittsburgh were chosen. According to the online Pittsburgh Business Times, a fellow by the name of Gene Jablonski so much enjoyed himself at our (I work for Wintzell's) southern location, he decided to take a restaurant back with him. If you do a google search for Wintzell's and Jablonski, the article should be the first link.

            Thank you for the info!  We all enjoyed ourselves so much when we were there in Mobile in February.  But then to hear that there was one in Pittsburgh......well, it seemed too good to be true!!!!  I can't wait to go back!

              Here is the article that ukasarex mentioned.  Great to here that two more Wintzell's will be opening down the line.
               
              And a big Roadfood welcome to ukasarexWintzell's certainly seems like it would be a cool company to work for.

                Wow!  TY you bb.  My family & I love oysters of all sorts.  Can't wait to try this.  I don't how I missed this post to begin with.  I have a neighbor who loves them raw & we've been talking about going down the strip but glad to hear this is another option.  Even though we're coming from the east end, happy to hear it is worth the drive.  TY again.

                  Oh, boy is it worth the drive. We're in central Ohio and will be going back to Wintzell's in Pittsburgh.

                        If he's going to open more spots, I wish he'd do one off this way.  Been way too long since I've been in Mobile......and I seem to have little reason to get back to Pittsburg any time soon.

                          Wintzell's is a good reason. Plus, you can get to Primanti Brothers and Wholey's. Now, what better reason do you need?
