Pittsburgh Eats: Eleven

Our last restaurant stop in Pittsburgh worth sharing is Sunday brunch at Eleven. A rehabilitated warehouse tucked next to the railway lines, this spot is elegant and polished.

For brunch, you can order a la carte, or do the Brunch Prix Fixe for $29. It includes an appetizer, entree, and choice of fresh juice or brunch cocktail.

It was our last meal in Pittsburgh, so we splurged and wanted to try more dishes through the Prix Fixe. We did a bit of sharing.

I ordered the Smoked Salmon with an everything bagel, egg, red onion, capers, and scallion cream cheese. A meal in itself! Reminded me of trips to NYC. I would have been happy with this dish alone.
Mr. H's sweet tooth kicked in, and he ordered the Grilled Sticky with a cinnamon swirl brioche, bacon butterscotch, and icing. Sweet, but decadent, and I saved a tiny bite for the end of the meal.
For his entree, Mr. H got the Smoked Lamb Huevos Rancheros with fried eggs, tomatillo salsa, goat cheese, and refried lentils.
While I preferred my Eggs Benedict with an English muffin, hollandaise, truffle vinaigrette, prosciutto cotto, arugula, and citrus, his dish was good too. Why isn't prosciutto an option with Benedict more often? 
This was a splurge-worthy brunch in Pittsburgh, and a very popular spot. Check it out if you're in the mood for an upscale brunch.
