6/7 polish items on the menu, and two of them weren't even available. The food was quite bad, fries were overcooked, full of oil and looked "old". Bread was soaked in sauce and falling into pieces. Average beer, average price. There was no music, and it was Saturday night, advertised on their web site as "Friday & Saturday - Live Music Starting at 9pm".

But, little has changed at the Bloomfield Bridge Tavern. Three friends and I were looking for a hearty meal and some beer following a football game. We headed into Bloomfield very late afternoon and hit the Little Italy festival. Liberty Ave was blocked for the festivities so I dropped the guys at the door of the Bloomfield Bridge Tavern. I drove to the next street turned right and right into the private parking lot (convenient in a congested neighborhood.

My friends were never in the establishment. I think they were skeptical. We ordered beer from a modest but good draft selection (Guiness, Sierra Nevada, east End IPA, among a few others on tap with a good bottle selection).

Two of us ordered the Polish Platter red (pirogie, hulushka, gulupka, kielbasa, kashka (sp) with spicy brown mustard and cream cheese.). One ordered a burger and another a chicken breast sandwich. It takes a bit of a wait since the kitchen, just off the bar is tiny.

The food arrived following some friendly banter with the bartender and server as well as a few locals. All was very good. One fellow who tried only a burger spotted the extra gulupka that I ordered asked if he could try one: He ate all three.

We arrived about 5:15 and left about 8:00. Not including tip our meal was $62.00 . . . a mix of food plus some beer. Other beer was pay as we went. It was a fun evening for four friends who travel to games about two or three times a year.

Bloomfield Bridge on the edge of what remains of Pittsburgh's "little Italy" is a place for lots of good but common food, very moderate prices, no pretenses. Very friendly staff and patrons. The facility is a worn building with few amenities.

Caution: restrooms are downstairs and not suitable for people who need special accommodation.

Liberty Ave has plenty of eating options. The red or white plate at the Bloomfield Tavern is a good one . Eating outside is the best. The picnic tables are a tad woobly but great food and cheap Yinglings. The cabbage and noodles Polish dish is great and the waitress was fun. Would love to go on band nights.
