Sarah Baugher, chef de cuisine at The Speckled Egg, suggests some of her favorite seafood dishes from eateries around the city.
Dish Osteria and Bar: Capesante al Polline di Finocchio
128 S. 17th Street
On point and delicious every time. Pair this scallop-and-fennel dish with a bottle of Trebbiano.
Muddy Waters Oyster Bar: Chef’s Choice Dozen
130 S. Highland Avenue
Based on my experiences around town, the best oysters on the half shell.
Mola: Hamachi Kama
6018 Penn Avenue
In my view, the best sushi in Pittsburgh.
SOJU: Head-On Shrimp with House-Made Udon
4923 Penn Avenue
Head-on shrimp with udon? Yes, to all of that in this occasional special.
The Speckled Egg PGH: All That Pimp Sh*t
501 Grant Street
Yes, a shameless plug for my own restaurant. This new menu item is an ode to OutKast’s ATLiens: Beer-battered Atlantic cod, Pimento Cheese Grits, snow peas, arugula, pickled carrot, pickled red onions, and Honey Lemon Vinaigrette.
