Whitfield Restaurant Review

: To locals, the arrival of Ace Hotel meant that Pittsburgh had "arrived"; that became clearer with the opening of Whitfield. The restaurant celebrates ingredients as individual entities masterfully combined in dishes served during breakfast, brunch, dinner and in the wee hours of the morning. Familiar stalwarts --- pancakes, biscuits with gravy and duck breast --- incorporate layers that push the plates to comfort-food territory; the accompaniments of spƤtzle, honey beets, pepitas and sweet-and-sour cabbage serve as one example. Brunch service is popular, with a controlled menu of savory and sweet choices. It's perfectly satisfying to pop in for dessert and drinks only; pair your cake or lemon mousse with a beverage that suits your preferences, even coffee. An essential addition to the city's late-night food scene, Whitfield serves its bar menu items through 2 a.m.
