Pittsburgh, PA Edition: Pittsburgh Airport - Bar Symon

Bar SymonSo, I had only been back for about a week from my trip to Milwaukee before I turned around and headed to the Pittsburgh airport once again to begin my next leg of travel. Because I was at the mercy of relying on others (one of my least favorite things to do ever), I ended up arriving at the airport quite early. The solution for that? Find food.

Bar SymonThe Pittsburgh airport has a few dining options - for quick service, there are places like Quiznos, McDonalds, Villa Italian Kitchen and Rice N Noodle. For waited service, there are paces like T.G.I.Friday's, Quaker Steak and Lube and Bar Symon. Bar Symon is the outlier here, as it is created by celebrity chef Michael Symon, a James Beard Award winning chef. He also is the mastermind behind B Spot Burgers.

Bar SymonThe menu at this location has appetizers, sandwiches, and some pasta dishes. Of course, what caught my eye was the macaroni and cheese. I went for the pulled pork mac.

Bar SymonIt was a pretty huge portion with pulled pork spread throughout, cheese baked on top with a drizzle of hot sauce. For airport food, it wasn't bad. I think the macaroni and cheese was actually a bit dry, and the pulled pork could've used some more flavor. But, not bad.
