The larger Salumi platter of charcuterie at Cure in Lawrenceville.

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.
