War Horse at the Benedum. Amazing show! Those puppet horses made me get all teary and I heard more than a few sniffles at the performance! Anyway, we decided to try a new to us restaurant and use one of our Pittsburgh Dining Cards. We chose Taste of Dahntahn.
Our server was very nice. He kept our iced teas filled, didn't rush us.
I just.. I left kind of confused about the place. The food was good but not great, prices didn't seem too bad (a 14" pizza, the entree, 2 iced teas, 2 desserts was $49) and it helped that we had a Pittsburgh Dining Card. I think the interior from front bar area to back dining area doesn't really track and definitely isn't my style, although I did really like the Pittsburgh photo topped tables. The decor also didn't seem to match what I expected from the web site and online menu and name of the restaurant.
We decided that maybe it has a bit of an identity crisis, but one with tasty iced tea, doughnuts, and chicken. I would go back, if only to dine there on a night with the full menu and the pre-theater menu and see what it is like. And to see if we again get disposable plastic cups that make me feel like I am at a keg party.
**NOTE: SP says the server told us the plastic cups were for Light Up Night only, but I must have missed that. I still wish at least the diners if not the bar patrons had been served in real glasses!
