The team at Yelp this week pulled together a few favorite Pittsburgh dining spots with cured meats featured prominently in the offerings.


When the restaurant is named Cure , it’s going to top the list of venues elevating preserved meats to a fine art.

Yelp user Andrew B. had these words of praise for the Lawrenceville charcuterie:

Of course, Cure owners Justin Severino and Hilary Prescott Severino don’t keep all the goodies in one place. Their nearby Morcilla offers just as extensive a selection of preserved meats.

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.
