Osteria 2350 (Strip District)

If you haven't noticed, there's a bit of a trend these days with higher end restaurants. All the newer examples are maximizing the size of their market with two restaurants made from what could have been used as a single space. One of those restaurants will be the higher end version to feature the delicate creations of an up-and-coming chef — or maybe even someone more established. The other side of the building, tends to include much of the same culinary inspiration but trends more in the direction of comfortable and casual — with a lower price point. The Spoon / Burger pairing is a good example of the trend, with other examples appearing in other cities (and likely Pittsburgh as well).

Osteria 2350 is the casual side of another example — along side Cioppino, the corresponding higher end destination. I've been to Cioppino, but I'm slightly more intrigued by the side I have yet to experience: the Osteria.

I'm a big fan of the low key destination that's laid back but still cares about the quality of their experience and the quality of their food. I suspect that Osteria 2350 will espouse just those qualities. I'm looking forward to giving it a try with the meetup.

    The meetup had good potential, some 'regulars' and some new folks, but due to the way we were seated and the very poor acoustics (bare walls, high factory-style ceiling, brick and ceramic walls) I could barely hear and had to strain my voice to make conversation. I had much more fun with the group at the last outing, The Bite Bistro.

    I liked the atompshere. I love the Strip District, but I did not like the location the restaurant picked. I would go back.
