Romantic Restaurant Vibes Outside of the City

It’s cold, we’re all feeling locked up and I for one do not mind driving for an amazing meal. With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, I wanted to offer up some incredible spots outside of Pittsburgh (<60 minutes driving). Think of it as a romantic road trip with a food light at the end of the tunnel?  

Here are the top 15 restaurants, voted on by the Pittsburgh food community.

*+ An asterisk that means a special Valentine’s Day feature is currently live on their website. A plus sign? That means I’ve personally checked it out!
