|Olives and Meatballs|
The meatballs were very well seasoned and quite flavorful. I was honestly surprised by the quality - even in comparison to some so called "nice" Pittsburgh Italian restaurants. The olives were fine. They weren't anything special, but by way of comparison I would like to say that they were one hundred times better than the house cured olives I tried at UP Modern Kitchen. Gross city!
The 1947 Tavern happy hour offers two dollar pony beers, three dollar rock and rye's and as stated, half price appetizers. The real treat though is the bourbon and whiskey selection. I'm pretty sure it might be the best in the city. (Braddock's and Winghart's are probably close.) Do you know somewhere in Pittsburgh with a better bourbon collection? Prove me wrong Pittsburgh!
