Ember & Vine Woodfire Oven and Social Bar has opened at the newly renovated DoubleTree by Hilton Pittsburgh-Cranberry.
Chef Sam Castrale, who started his career in New York City and spent time in Austin and Seattle before moving to Pittsburgh, has developed a menu that showcases his “scratch cooking” philosophy.
The menu will feature specialties from the restaurant's custom-made woodfire oven — such as the potato pizza with thinly sliced Yukon gold potatoes, fresh rosemary, provolone, pecorino, arugula and garlic oil, as well as chef favorites such as the pan-roasted wild-caught filet of fish with celery-root puree, and house-cured duck Reuben with pastrami and sauerkraut.
Ember & Vine Woodfire Oven and Social Bar in the Atrium of the hotel is open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
