Roost offers ‘dining expeditions’ with #Foodtripping events

Mary Pickels
Roost is offering a fall series of destination dinners at its Market Square, Pittsburgh, location.

Diners who enjoy exploring culinary destinations while not traveling far from the comforts of home can go #Foodtripping at Roost during four fall weekends.

The Market Square restaurant is offering the food series, with executive chef Brendan Arenth featuring a different culinary destination and a menu highlighting that region’s seasonal cuisine, according to a news release.

Along with the destination-based fare, a flight of American wines is available offering three-ounce pours

of wines from across the U.S. for $15.

The first destination is a New England seaside retreat, Sept. 14-15.

“When you think of New England, you automatically think of lobster, chowder, fishing boats, and cold

water. And somehow it seems the colder the water, the fresher the fish tastes,” Arenth says in the release.

The menu features littleneck clams, butter poached Maine lobster and a lobster and clam boil.

Upcoming #Foodtripping destinations include: Pacific Northwest Getaway, Sept. 21-22; Alaskan Excursion, Sept. 28-29; and New Orleans Wanderings, Oct. 5-6, the release states.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
