Anyone who has ever experienced a layover at the Pittsburgh International Airport has discovered what locals have known for years: PIT isn’t just an airport; it’s also a place for shopping and dining while waiting to board a plane and a site to have a casual cocktail while waiting on arriving flights. Waited dining services tend to cater toward the palates of Pittsburgh with a Quaker Steak & Lube serving up fiery orders of wings and Burgh Sportz Bar cashing in on the region’s passion for Penguins, Pirates and pro-footballers, the Pittsburgh Steelers.  The most recent addition to the seated dining experience at PIT, however, comes to the area from an unlikely rival city – one that claims to be the “Rock and Roll Capital of the World.” Created by Cleveland born Iron Chef – Michael Symon – Bar Symon brings an adventurous dining experience to the travelers of the Steel City and – as noted by Hal B. Klein of the Pittsburgh City Paper – “serious connoisseurs alike.” The appetizer menu pushes the boundaries of typical airport food: roasted bone marrow, duck confit sliders, pork belly croutons, but the entrees tend to rely more on regional / traditional tastes: fried chicken, grilled trout, smoked pork butt, steak and grilled meatloaf. Symon’s approach to food is decidedly “meat-centric,” but there are several salads on the menu for vegetarian patrons. Vegan options could reasonably come from the restaurant’s “bar snacks” and “sides” menu. Also available are ten draft beers and a fully stocked bar. It’s an exciting time to fly in and out of Pittsburgh, and Bar Symon brings a touch of the high-life (without the pretension) to frequent flyers of the friendly skies. 

 

Lobos Management has several properties that are just minutes from the Pittsburgh International Airport. Located in nearby Coraopolis, the Foxwood building offers studio and one-bedroom apartments that are perfect for regular travelers or airport area suburbanites. For those with a need for a bit more space, Lobos Management’s Oxford Court houses two bedroom apartments with stunning hardwood floors, a private entrance and lots of lush green space in the front and rear yards. Both of these buildings are minutes from Robinson Town Center and just seconds from the adventurous dining experience at Bar Symon in the Pittsburgh International Airport.

The recent spread of the “gastropub” concept across the culinary landscape of America took root within the Pittsburgh city limits several years ago. Casual high-end dining options like Kevin Sousa’s Salt of the Earth and Richard DeShantz’s Downtown eatery, Meat and Potatoes, have been tantalizing the taste buds of local diners since late 2010 and early 2011 respectively. This trend toward fine dining in a casual pub-type atmosphere has not been restricted to the city limits, however. Within one mile of each other in Robinson Township are two relatively new additions to the airport area cuisine culture: Burgatory and Bocktown Beer & Grill. As an offshoot of its flagship restaurant in Fox Chapel, Burgatory’s Robinson location effortlessly melds gourmet burger creations with its accessible strip mall location, bringing a touch of dining elegance to the suburbs. Heralded for their creative fusion of the classic milkshake with exotic spirits, Burgatory has been satisfying customers with their cocktails since opening the doors in 2012. A feature of the Burgatory menu is the ability to customize all burger creations by utilizing a simple checklist of breads, meats, sauces, rubs, and condiments. Customizing specialty orders is not exclusive to Burgatory, however, as a quick glance at Bocktown Beer & Grill’s menu will reveal an impressive number of toppings for their “Flat Belly Fries,” an area favorite that treats a large portion of hand cut French fries like an order of nachos. Toppings include jalapenos, beer kraut, pickled onions, peppered bacon, ham, beer cheese, beef gravy, bleu cheese dressing, and dozens of others. Interestingly, Bocktown’s “soup of the day” is also listed as an available topping for an order of fries. With countless combinations, an order of French fries at Bocktown can easily turn into a four course meal in and of itself. Another highlight of Bocktown’s menu is the constantly rotating selection of craft beers which their knowledgeable bartenders and servers will happily suggest as the perfect complement to an evening meal.

 

Lobos Management offers several rental complexes in the Robinson / airport area bringing easy access to gastropub dining without having to travel all the way into the city.  The Bradford apartment building in Corapolis is just minutes from the shopping and entertainment available in Robinson making this an ideal suburban location. Another benefit to this property is its accessibility to the Pittsburgh International Airport, the area’s largest airport and hub for Southwest and Delta airlines.

Lobos Management’s Oxford Court – located at 355 Moon Clinton Road in Coraopolis, PA – offers immediate access to many amenities of suburban living in this quaint Pittsburgh-area neighborhood. With parks, Universities, shopping, and easy access to public transportation, Oxford Court is a prime location for everyone from frequent flyers to RMU Colonials.

 

Surrounded by parks and golf courses, residents of Oxford Court are never far from the lush forest greens of area parks – Moon Township ParkRobin Hill Park, and Olson Park – or from the putting greens at Montour Heights Country Club, the Marada Golf Course or West Hills Par-3. Moon Park offers five picnic pavilions that are available for private events, an amphitheater, basketball courts, baseball and soccer fields, as well as many scenic hiking trails. The centerpiece of Moon Park, though, is the recently renovated pond where families can enjoy waterfront picnics and catch-and-release fishing. The park at Robin Hill features more than two miles of walking trails that circle around the majestic Georgian-style home and authentic 1800s log cabin. The carriage house on the grounds serves as home to the Moon Area Senior Citizen’s Center, a destination for many of the area’s retirees and senior members. The heavily wooded Olson Park is the perfect place for an outdoor excursion where park visitors can hike, bird watch, and fully explore the great outdoors. With three accessible golf courses in the area, Oxford Court would be a dream location for an avid or recreational golfer.

 

Blocks from Oxford Court is the main campus of Robert Morris University, one of the area’s leading institutions of higher education. The University offers sixty undergraduate degrees and twenty graduate degrees including a Master of Business, Doctor of Nursing Practice, and a Ph.D. in Instructional Management and Leadership. RMU’s many sports teams (the Colonials) are nationally competitive and have excelled in recent NCAA basketball tournaments. Also located just down the Parkway from this Lobos Management property is the West Penn branch of Strayer University, a national leader of hybrid education offering degrees both on campus and online.

 

With the Parkway and public transportation providing quick access to both Pittsburgh and suburban shopping centers, Oxford Court residents are surrounded with retail options. The Mall at Robinson houses several major department stores including Macy’sJCPenney, and Sears. Many specialty stores also line the long hallways of the mall: Green SpaGet InkedCrazy 8, and Fashions& Gifts by Morini. Across from the mall is the area’s only Ikea showroom and marketplace which draws shoppers from all over Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Ohio.

 

Perhaps the greatest benefit to residing in Lobos Management’s Oxford Court is the building’s proximity to the Pittsburgh International Airport. Frequent travelers can attest to the convenience of living near a major airport. Within minutes, residents of Oxford Court could be on a non-stop flight to Paris, a plane bound for the sandy shores of Bermuda or the Bahamas, or on a jet to Jamaica, Juneau, or Jacksonville.  When the entire world lays waiting to be discovered, Oxford Court provides the doorway to adventure.

 

With so much to offer area residents, this Lobos Management property is truly a gem of suburban Pittsburgh.
