Bar Symon (Pittsburgh International Airport)

Last year I wrote enthusiastically about my visit to Chef Symon's Lola in Cleveland, and so ever since it was announced that Bar Symon would be coming to the Pittsburgh International Airport, I had been looking forward to paying a visit.

Only problem: Bar Symon is located inside the gate area, past the security checkpoint...which means no flying, no Bar Symon.

Well, my opportunity finally came on our trip back from New Orleans to Pittsburgh when our flight landed conveniently around lunch time. The menu at Bar Symon features appetizers, salads, frieds, sandwiches, and several varieties of mac and cheese.  My choice was the Fat Doug Burger, with pastrami, swiss cheese, coleslaw, and mustard on a challah bun.

The burger tasted as good as it looked.  And, although I did not imbibe, it looks like there were some good craft beers on tap as well.

Although I wish I could visit Bar Symon anytime the fancy strikes (and not just when I'm flying), I am certainly glad that we have such a great dining option at the airport.  Chef Symon, thank you for landing in Pittsburgh!
