Primanti Bros. for their famous sandwiches. I got the sliced steak and S went for the capicola with egg. Both were topped with melted cheese, tomatoes, coleslaw and french fries and they were huge! After stuffing ourselves, we hit up the Andy Warhol Museum.
Arsenal Cider House and Wine Cellar had a bunch of delicious semi-sweet and bone dry ciders on tap ranging from classic apple to sour cherry, to blueberry. S was digging their honey cider mead and I particularly liked their semi-sweet sour cherry cider, so after taste testing a bunch of others we grabbed a glass each and went to sit outside in their "cider garden". The weather was crisp, but not too chilly (apparently the mosquitoes were still alive and kicking as well since I got 2 bites while we were out there) and perfect for leisurely sipping a glass of cider and chatting. For dinner we headed a few streets over to the Church Brew Works.
Simmons Farm, which happens to have an apple orchard. This was S's first time every picking apples and I was so excited to share such a quintessentially fall pastime from the Midwest with him. After we both picked our half pecks, we grabbed some fresh apple cider and a caramel apple to snack on outside. So sticky. So delicious. S was amazed at how good the fresh apple cider was. For dinner that night we splurged a bit at Butcher and the Rye and then hit up Fat Heads Saloon, where we met up with friends for some more specialty Midwest beers.
Grand Concourse, a gorgeous old art-deco train station that had been converted into a restaurant. And that was it. From the restaurant we headed straight to the airport for our flight home. It was such a fun weekend!
