Holiday Food Guide to the Strip District

Generations of Pittsburghers have served their friends and family food lovingly purchased in the Strip District during the holidays, and for good reason! We rounded up some classic choices to treat your family (and yourself) this season.

  1. It wouldn’t be a holiday guide to the Strip without the Pennsylvania Macaroni Company (or, Penn Mac). Order an Italian appetizer tray for your next gathering, or bring your loved ones to the shop to browse their huge selection of cheeses, meats, and more!

  2. Located on Smallman Street, Wigle Whiskey offers a wide selection of craft whiskeys and spirits, including special holiday releases like the Kilted Rye and the Rudolph. While you’re there, pick up a unique liqueur for seasonal cocktails. May we suggest the maple?

  3. If you or your loved ones prefer a vegan, gluten-free or otherwise health-conscious diet, Heirloom Superfood Market is a must-visit. Order gluten-free and vegan treats (like these macarons) from Pittsburgh-based Café Chocolade by December 17th!

  4. Enrico’s Biscotti Company makes the perfect sweet treat to pair with your after-dinner coffee, or for a pick me up any time of day. Order your big red tin of authentic Italian biscotti today.

  5. If you make a seven-fish dinner or host large parties this time of year, Wholey’s meat and fish market is probably already on your list. While you’re there, check out their party trays to make your life a little easier this holiday season.

  6. Last, but not least, if you’re looking to treat someone else to a night out, but could really use one yourself, consider purchasing gift cards to Osteria 2350 and Cioppino Restaurant & Cigar Bar. Now through December 31st, you’ll get a $25 bonus certificate when you purchase $100 in gift cards, or a $150 bonus when you spend $500.
