Pepperwood Grille (Greensburg)

It is not often that R. gets to introduce me to a restaurant he's discovered, but Pepperwood Grille was one exception. He fell in love with the sweet potato pizza there and was excited to have me try it.

So off to Pepperwood Grille we went one Saturday evening. We decided to start out with a couple of appetizers. The Spinach and Artichoke Stuffed Mushrooms, topped with a parmesan cream sauce, were pretty standard, but tasty. The Firecracker Shrimp was a bit more unique, tossed in a lightly spicy aioli and served over jasmine rice. We both agreed it was excellent!

Then, onto the star of the evening: the Sweet Potato Pie. The mashed sweet potato base is topped with caramelized onions, roasted red peppers, goat cheese, and arugula. It was really interesting, and quite good. R. was a bit disappointed that the mashed sweet potatoes didn't have as much flavor as he'd remembered, but overall, we enjoyed it. And, for what it's worth, it inspired me to make my own version of it, which you will see in my next post. :)

In sum, Pepperwood Grille is a good option out in this neck of the woods!
