I have to tell you a bit about Lidia’s. Alan loves to watch cooking shows on Saturday mornings. One of his favorites is ‘Lidia’s Italian Kitchen’ (or something like that…). Well, when he found out she had a restaurant in Pittsburgh, and we just so happened to be going to Pittsburgh….!! We just had to go there. The food was great. Very different from the Italian we usually get at a restaurant.
Alan’s aunt took us to the "Strip District"…and no, it’s not what you think! It is a strip of shops, mostly fresh foods from several different ethnicities. Lots of old funky buildings full of old funky smells…. fun, seriously. It just so happened that Lidia’s is in the Strip District, so that worked out nicely!
