Who better to dish on the new Giant Eagle Market District
in Robinson's Settlers Ridge shopping center than Pittsburgh's food bloggers?
Just a sampling from the buffet:
FoodBurgh writes, "Every time I thought I found the end, I ran into yet another dining possibility," and makes sure to explain that Giant Eagle specially courted bloggers, holding a reception and tour just for new media types in the Burgh.
Burghilicious states, "This is not a grocery store. This is a grocery hangar. First of all, the prepared foods cafe in this Market District is ginormous. In addition to a truly massive traditional salad bar, there is a hot bar and also a cold bar featuring things like lentils, curried couscous and hummus. But then there's also a crepe stand, sushi, a rotisserie, tossed-to-order salads, a pizza counter, a curry and stir-fry corner, and more options that I am not able even to remember, let alone enumerate. Plus free wifi."
She also highlights the produce section (which features entire hydroponic system right in the middle of the room), the meat counter and cheese locker, and the carryout beer section.
Finally, Culinary Cory details a very cool cooking demonstration by Ted Allen, host of Chopped on Food Network, and promises to post more pics shortly.
