I love my birthday, and I try to extend the celebrations for as long as possible. That’s why I started my birthday celebrations early, while I was in New York over Labor Day, and continued the celebrations this past weekend here in Pittsburgh.

First up was dinner at Superior Motors, a new restaurant in Braddock. This restaurant has been in the works for about three years now – it’s housed in an old Chevrolet dealership. The chef, Kevin Sousa, has opened three other restaurants in the Pittsburgh area, and actually used Kickstarter to help raise the funds for this one. The restaurant finally had its highly-anticipated opening earlier this summer, and I was so excited to get the chance to try it out for my birthday dinner!
Superior Motors absolutely lived up to – and exceeded – my expectations. The menu is inventive, with offerings like scallops with tomatillo and quinoa, lamb with yogurt and kohlrabi, and rigatoni with sweetbreads and shrimp. Everything that we ordered was delicious and perfectly prepared. The desserts were also incredibly tasty, and I’ve never been anywhere else that offered a chocolate dessert accompanied by mushroom, maple, and matcha. I’m so glad that Superior Motors is a new addition to Pittsburgh’s restaurant scene, and I can’t wait to go back!

I had one more event as part of my birthday weekend – the Bastille concert at Stage AE. I love going to outdoor concerts at Stage AE – there isn’t really a bad seat in the house, and prices are incredibly reasonable, and the bands always put on a great show. Bastille was celebrating their one-year birthday of their most recent album release, so I was excited to celebrate both their album’s birthday and my birthday.
And with that, my birthday weekend came to a close! I had such a fun time celebrating with my family and friends.
