Dish is a small restaurant on the South Side. The place is small, so it is always crowded and often filled with cigarette smoke, but the food makes it worth squeezing into the small dining room. Most patrons like to try a variety of small dishes, such as pasta e fagioli or a bowl of mussels. There is also a wonderful assortment of cheese and salami. Full bar service. See website for menus, specials, wine list, and event calendar.
Smokin' Joe's attracts a mixed crowd, everything from college students to 30-something couples. The bar has one of the largest selections of domestic and imported beers in the Pittsburgh area. The drinks are served at a long bar that sports lots of wood and brass. The downstairs is always crowded, and somewhat noisy. The upstairs bar seems like a different place. It is much quieter and cozier. The back room on the first floor has competitive pool tables and dartboards. The full menu serves American dishes.

Paparrazi is the kind of place where you will find twenty-somethings mingling with senior citizens. The two-story club serves delicious Italian and American dishes. Thursday through Sunday, live jazz bands get the place hopping. The theme is art deco, which makes the mirror-lined spiral staircase to the second-floor dining area a challenge after a few glasses of wine. When the weather is nice, patrons can dine outdoors. The restaurant also hosts private parties.

The Zenith Gallery has grown tremendously over the years. It began as a small antique shop in a residential neighborhood. Soon, the owners opened a side room to exhibit artwork in a variety of media. Before long performance artists, such as spoken-word artist Lydia Lunch, were performing in the gallery. Finally the owners added a Tea Room, which serves an extensive collection of teas as well as vegetarian dishes for lunch and dinner. Local and national artists display their work on the gallery walls, while performances are put forth by local bands, cabaret acts and touring musicians.
