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.
