As the polar vortex and extreme cold begin to wane, what’s new in the world of Pittsburgh dining?

Food contributor and Pittsburgh Post-Gazette food writer Melissa McCart discusses how comfort foods are making a comeback at restaurants in Pittsburgh because of this cold season.

Comfort food, homemade meatballs in particular, have been very popular this winter.

“People love meatballs. We’re seeing meatballs come back onto menus at Cure, at East Squared, at A Modern Kitchen...but if you go to the Meatball Joint you can have five-hundred-and-thirty-something combinations of meatballs. It’s kind of amazing.”
