Downtown Pittsburgh Eateries Close Fri, 06/1/12 3:37 PM (permalink)
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has an article in today's paper about two long time downtown eateries closing in the same week. Between The Smithfield Cafe and George Aiken's, they had been in business for 122 years.  Too bad.  Shame on me, because I had never been to either place.
They also name some other small independent downtown restaurants and I am going to try and visit those.  The Original Oyster House is a place I have debated on reviewing for Roadfood.  They do have a terrific fish sandwich and plenty of history and at 142 years old, is the oldest restaurant in the city.  They also mention the Tic Toc Restaurant inside Macy's, which we used to eat at all the time when my mother would take me downtown as a kid to do shopping.  It was inside Kaufmann's Department Store back then.  Tic-Toc even found its way inside one of the older Roadfood books.  It has been years since I have been to the Paragon Lunch, but I remember liking it very much.
I think I will visit these places and report back.  Maybe Kenny Joe or Ralph Melton would be able to join me sometime.
