With Pittsburgh on the rise as one of America’s most impressive ‘second cities,’ there’s no better time than now to share what our Bullfrogs were up to during a recent visit.  The ladies hit up popular cultural spots like The Andy Warhol Museum, hidden gems like Randyland, and feasted on the infamous Pittsburgh Salad, which is unapologetically topped with French fries. This booming city has seen a revitalization of hip-restaurants and fine-dining, but the most anticipated dinner of the trip? Union Standard.  Chef and Owner Derek Stevens opened this already-talked-about restaurant earlier this year featuring a menu of Mid-Atlantic, Northeast and Appalachian cuisine. Yum!

Join us on a photo exploration of Team Bullfrog’s visit as we ogle these mouth-watering images that have left us with some serious FOMO.
