Overflowing with nostalgia, Taste Of Dahntahn embraces the spirit of Pittsburghese in both its decor and its menu.
Pittsburghese is the traditional dialect spoken by native Pittsburghers (who, in the vernacular, are called "yinzers" many of whom work in downtown aka "dahntahn").
The restaurant is located in a narrow, century-old structure called the Dallmeyer Building (it originally housed the business of tobacconist Henry Dallmeyer) with a marquee-style sign above the door. The interior decor is a cool, retro-look reflecting the styles of the 50s and 60s --- and lots of vintage photos of downtown Pittsburgh.
A large square bar, surrounded by high-backed stools done up in red and white leather, dominates the space. In the rear is a dining area that sometimes hosts local performers.
