This self-described neighborhood tavern at the Ace Hotel, led by Pittsburgh native Brent Young, roots its menu in local and regional ingredients and stays close to the culinary traditions of Pennsylvania. Some of those at Whitfield include plates of pastrami hash, pierogies, and deviled and pickled eggs with sides like coleslaw and hash browns. The whole menu is sturdy, blue-collar foods brought up a notch. It’s good and filling, and the portions aren’t exaggerated. The restaurant, with its high ceilings and lovingly-worn wooden tables and chairs, opens into the lobby entrance, coffee shop, and bar. There is always a gaggle of impossibly cool kids checking in or having drinks with friends. Brunch is quieter than dinner, when reservations are the safest way to go.
