Travelers looking for a taste of Pittsburgh can now experience the legendary Primanti Bros. at Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT). Primanti Bros. Restaurant and Bar opened at the airport, bringing its iconic menu to airport travelers for the first time. The restaurant is known for piling fresh-cut fries and coleslaw on sandwiches – a practice it started in the ‘30s for hungry truckers on the go. Primanti Bros.’ new 2,700-square-foot outpost in the Center Core is an offshoot of its original location in the Strip District, down to decor that celebrates its hometown roots. A colorful hand-painted mural by local artist Dave Klug features Steel City legends, ranging from industry titans and sports greats to Mister Rogers.
Open morning to night, Primanti Bros. also brings new offerings for travelers – including, for the first time, breakfast. The brand new breakfast menu features a variety of over-the-top breakfast sandwiches - served Primanti-style with fries and slaw, of course, plus Breakfast Plates and a la carte items. Classic Almost Famous Sandwiches, Tall Boys and Signature Handhelds along with appetizers, fries, soups and salads round out the main menu. The restaurant is set up to accommodate more than 100 customers at a time and is engineered to ensure travelers are able to enter and leave quickly if they need – or to hang and have a beer if they’re killing time prior to a flight. The full bar will offer a wide selection of beer, cocktails and wine.
