Cured meats have become a standard on menus across Pittsburgh. They can take center stage as a deliciously salty appetizer or work their way into the main course.
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.
Venture a bit farther east to hit Spork in Friendship. John Guisto prepares these charcuterie spreads for the whole table:

Salty Pork Bits
Don’t feel like venturing outdoors? Jump online and use the digital charcuterie with the straight-forward name, Salty Pork Bits . But give them until October to complete the next batch.
