Year after year, Pittsburgh tops the surveys as America's most livable big city. The greatest steel town the world ever knew is characterized by cool old neighborhoods, beautiful views, friendly people, and a food renaissance. Chuck starts his tour of Penn Avenue at Meat & Potatoes where native son Richard DeShantz pays homage to his hometown's culinary roots with updated comfort food like pot roast with horseradish gremolata. Chuck's next stop is at Penn Avenue Fish Company where chef Henry Dewey runs a wholesale fish market and eatery specializing in - what else - seafood! He uses the belly of a yellowfin tuna to make a barbecued tuna sandwich with guacamole and sweet potato chips.
Acadiana - Louisiana's Cajun country - seems like its own nation. It has a flag, language, customs, and a cultural capital, the city of Lafayette. Here on Pinhook Road, tradition runs deep, but Chuck visits chefs both young and old who are spicing it up with new points of view. At Jolie's Louisiana Bistro, Chef Greg Doucet fries up fried fish heads and teaches Chuck about the difference between Creole and Cajun heritage. Deli by day, restaurant by night, Bread & Circus Provisions is where Chef Manny Augello's mad charcuterie skills lead Chuck to chow down on a bowl of ramen with miso broth, pork rib, and pickled quail egg.
