Head's up, Cliff, Lori & Ralph

Serious Eats did a year end wrap up and one of the links is on Pittsburgh food history and I thought you might find it interesting.

    Fantastic!
     But I'm sticking with lleechef on the origin of the steak salad. Hilltop it is! After all, Rochester is her home town.

    Ed Levine is the founder of Serious Eats. He used to write for the New York Times and one of his columns from 2003 has been my inspiration.

    On a trip back to NY this week and our first in 2 years, we stopped at Leo's Latticini for heroes; boy I miss that place.

    Everyone in Beaver County knows the Hilltop in Rochester "invented" the steak salad!  When I was a teenager in the early 70s we went to Jerry's Curb Service for burgers and fries, Wooden Indian (not mentioned in the article) for ham BBQs and fries and to the Hilltop for steak salads.  Then over to Hank's for frozen custard!  For good "Italian red sauce" there was Didio's in Rochester.......now long gone.

    A Heartwarming Article!
    Surprised the Friday Fish Fries at the churches weren't mentioned; or the Pierogi Sales; OR the old Beer Brands,
