Restaurant Concepts: Brick Shop and Over Eden
TRYP Hotel partnered with Kate Romane Productions to create the food and beverage program at the hotel’s two new restaurant concepts. Chef Kate Romane assisted in the selection of Chef Mike Rado as Executive Chef of Brick Shop and Over Eden. Romane will continue to assist Rado as he assembles his local culinary team and adds his perspective to the menus for both concepts.
Guests can expect a menu focused on a classic contemporary American cuisine at Brick Shop, while its sister restaurant, Over Eden, will offer fresh, multicultural, shareable dishes at the laidback rooftop hangout. Both restaurants will have regularly changing menus rooted in seasonality of local ingredients. Boutique wine lists are being crafted by Food and Beverage Director Holly Smith, a veteran of West Coast and Western, PA fine dining scenes, whose background includes membership within the ultra-elite Court of Master Sommeliers. A cocktail program will present classics as they should be: simple, fresh new offerings.
Executive Chef Announcement: Chef Mike Rado, formerly of Butcher on Butler
Rado has been named the Executive Chef of the two restaurant concepts at the new TRYP Hotel, slated to open in late winter/ early Spring 2019. With nearly 25 years in the food industry, Rado is bringing a big personality and big flavor to Brick Shop and Over Eden.
Set on the site of a former trade school in Pittsburgh’s Lawrenceville neighborhood, the school’s old Brick Shop emerges with a new craft. Brick Shop serves contemporary seasonal American food with a robust wine program in a space that echoes the history and heart of the neighborhood. From menus drafted in the handwriting of the building’s original architect to the seasonal menu, featuring the bounty of the region and the creativity of our city’s finest food artisans, Brick Shop is a Lawrenceville original.
High above Eden Way, atop the former trade school, sits the rooftop restaurant and garden bar, waiting to be discovered. Over Eden invites you up with plates to share and a vibrant bar program. And there’s a view.
