Restaurants

East Allegheny's varied mix of ethnic restaurants fill up customers without breaking the bank. You'll find most of these eateries East Ohio Street. The comfortable Bistro To Go specializes in New American cuisine, and residents go there for a quick brunch, lunch or dinner. The standard menu includes weekly specials, and as the name implies, you can get your food to go or eat at the dining room or outdoor tables.

Chef Dan makes diners feel right at home as he cooks each order from an entertaining open kitchen. Order the margherita bruschetta or antipasto for appetizers, and try the mussels bianca over linguini as an entrée. With friendly service and big portions of classic Italian cuisine, it comes as no surprise that Pittsburgh Magazine awarded Legends of the North Shore the best restaurant award of 2012.

History

The area originated as part of a 3,000-acre land tract created by the state to encourage settlement north of the Ohio River. As part of the plan, what we now know as East Allegheny was set aside as farm land. The early immigrants, mostly German in ethnicity, named the neighborhood Deutschtown and developed a residential and commercial district during the 1900s. In 1984, the Deutschtown Historic District was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
