The menu is made up predominately of Lebanese fare and features a variety of options such as hummus, shish kabob, falafel wraps, filet mignon and baklava.

Eleven is by far one of Pittsburgh's most innovative and trendy offerings. Step into this stylish restaurant with curved lounge sofas and cozy round tables for a fine evening. Order by the bar or eat a sumptuous meal, which offers options such as Grilled Veal Paillard, gnocchi, salmon and the ever-favorite Eleven Burger with apple wood-smoked bacon, beef and veal. There's also a Chef's tasting menu, which is a convenient way to explore the restaurant's 'return' potential! - though by the time you're done with the dessert (Local Peach Pie, Banana Cream Pie and The Coconut), you would have come to your own conclusions. Eleven bakes its own bread and even makes its own chocolate, so pick up some on your way out.
City Grill offers large hamburgers cooked over a hardwood grill. The grill enables the chef to cook the meat so it is crispy on the outside and rare on the inside, if that is the way you like them. Another favorite is the grilled chicken sandwich. The menu also includes steaks, shrimp, and a variety of appetizers, salads and desserts. There is a full service bar, although the bar is not equipped with stools. The focus here is eating, not drinking.
