Our continuing coverage of Bridgeport Restaurant Week heads out to a fan-favorite--literally. Our fourth stop takes us to the Mountaineer Grille, where Mountaineer fans and great food are expected at the door.
It's where the gold-and-blue and fine dining meet.
"My father was a big Mountaineer fan and my sister lives in Morgantown, and she has season tickets," said Mountaineer Grille Chef Kevin Pinti. "I don't know how they came up with it completely, but I'm blaming my father. He loved food, and he loved the Mountaineers."
A loyal clientele, a calm atmosphere, and a dedication to the West Virginia Mountaineers has people coming back for more and more.
"I've been cooking for 34 years and brought a little bit back home to West Virginia--seafood and different things and local stuff," Pinti said.
And you won't want to miss out on their special menu.
"I'm going to be doing fresh ground lamb for lunch featuring a pocket pita with feta cheese, rosemary, and roasted garlic," said Pinti. "And then for dinner we're going to do a panzanella salad, heirloom tomatoes with some Italian dinunzio bread with croutons in there and fresh basil, balsamic, all that good stuff. Then I'm going to do a chicken cacciatore for an entree."
