Here are a dozen places to visit in Downtown/Strip District, East End, South Side and South Hills for the best tacos in Pittsburgh.
Jade Grille opened this past Monday for lunch and dinner at 670 Washington Road in Mt. Lebanon. The pan-Asian menu includes small plates, including Handmade Steamed Dumplings, as well as soups and entrees featuring hand-pulled noodles. There's also an assortment of "open flame skewers," soups, sushi and wok dishes, plus a full 40-foot bar in the space that formerly was Union National Bank (you can sit in the former vault or at the chef's table/sushi bar in the open kitchen). The website -- jadegrille.com -- still is a work in progress; the phone is 412-531-6666.
