Bills Burgers will be opening on April 22nd in the Westin Hotel in downtown Pittsburgh. It’s taking over the spot that once housed the Fish Market. At the tasting menu preview it was obvious that this would be an interesting place to eat and enjoy the warm and interesting atmosphere.
President and C.E.O. James Gersten said “Pittsburgh has an amazing food scene and we have a great relationship with the hotel so it was easy to decide to open a place here.” Bills Burgers offers more than burgers and fries though those are quite delicious especially the award winning, Fat Cat Burger.
Gersten points out the exceptional work by the in-house sushi chefs who make beautiful and tasty work. I tried several of the pieces including Bill’s Pittsburgh Roll that’s made with spicy tuna, eel, avocado, cucumber and eel sauce. It’s worth trying even if you are not a sushi fiend like I am.
One of the very unique aspects of Bill’s is the relationship it has developed with many of the local businesses. You’ll find that connection on the menu with items such as the fickle and pickle dish, tart and of course Heniz products.
Gersten says Bill’s Burger hopes to attract customers, “from the hotel guest, convention goers and definitely the loyal Pittsburgh customers” and he believes the quality and variety of the items will do the job.
Besides the excellent sushi, burgers, shakes and fries are the down right delicious desserts. They are so worth the extra calories. They range from cherry pop tarts to warm and delicious cookies.
One thing James Gersten wants Pittsburgers and visitors to know about Bill’s Burger is the local chef and management team commitment to making every visit the very best.
