Eleven - Stript District

Oysters with vinaigrette and habanaro sauce.
Whenever I score big at a family poker game I tell my uncles, "this week I'm having oysters for lunch."  If you want oysters in Pittsburgh I only have two strong recommendations. You can either go to the oyster cart outside of Wholey's or you can walk a few more blocks, put on a nice shirt and head to Eleven. Don't forget the nice shirt, you may feel a bit out of place. Eleven is a fancy establishment, I don't think they were pleased when we decided to sing happy birthday to our friend Robin Bolea at the top of our lungs during happy hour.

In addition to being well mannered and well dressed you should bring some scratch, Eleven is not cheap. Dinner with a glass of wine can easily run $50, but it is worth it. Every dish I've ever had at Eleven has been unique and well prepared. In particular I recommend the tuna tartare and the oysters, always fresh and well paired with interesting flavors. I'm not really a dessert man, but Eleven also does a fantastic job with their bread and pastries. Like I said though, bring some scratch.

This chocolate cake makes being overweight acceptable.
