Pittsburgh, PA, July 30, 2012: On Tuesday August 14, local food bloggers are invited to an exclusive dinner at The Porch at Schenley in Pittsburgh’s Oakland neighborhood. At the dinner, co-hosted by Pittsburgh Restaurant Week and the Buy Fresh Buy Local program, bloggers receive “Back-Kitchen-Access” to the mind of one of the Steel City’s premiere chefs, Kevin Hermann.
“Throughout my career as a chef, I’ve found it is increasingly difficult to convey the passion of food through advertising, which is why food bloggers are such an important part of the restaurant business. These dedicated bloggers can provide others with a truly genuine experience. One that includes their food, atmosphere, and overall experience. I feel honored and humbled to have a such a wide range of bloggers joining us for restaurant week. “ said Chef Kevin, of The Porch.
The Porch at Schenley, often referred to simply as “The Porch,” describes their menu as an eclectic mix of familiar foods with things that are altogether surprising and new. During Pittsburgh Restaurant Week – Summer 2012, from August 13-19, The Porch is offering a Three-Course Fixed-Price meal for only $30. Though the menu changes daily, restaurant week dinners can browse a sample course menu at pittsburghrestaurantweek.com. Attendees of the Blogger Dinner will be invited to dine from either the Pittsburgh Restaurant Week menu, or the full daily menu.
The Porch at Schenley is a member of the Eat’n Park Hospitality Group which is a portfolio of foodservice concepts focused on personalized dining and winner of the National Restaurant Association’s 2011 Restaurant Neighbor Award for community service.
