Yelp has released their top 100 restaurants list a few hours ago. By no surprise, Pittsburgh’s Gaucho Parrilla Argentina was strongly positioned at #36. The place is stunning inside, the chefs are happy, and so are the customers. The food isn’t for show, but for eating. This is how a small restaurant can change the industry.

Call ahead, get in line, rent out the Bodega while you still can.
