Butterjoint is the first come first served/open seating bar adjacent to white table cloth Legume. It's small, so get there early to grab a two-top or a seat at the bar. You can order from Legume's menu, or from the small Butterjoint menu. We ordered...More

So Butterjoint is a find - loved by Carnegie Mellon professors, locals, and everybody in between. They ooze mixology, and serve Black Manhattans after carefully mixing them in crystal with ice. Get there early and grab a seat at the bar and watch the place...More

Have been to Legume several times with mixed results. Their more casual adjacent space was a hit with us. Limited seating made for a bit of a wait, but well worth it. Their burger was one of the best that I can remember having in...More

Butterjoint offers a great selection of drinks in the Oakland area. Its a great place to go to for a drink and a good meal when looking to get away from the college town environment.

Parking is expensive-very little street parking, no parking for restaurant so add on for valet parking across the street. Imaginative cocktails, great mocktail!

Cool, intimate space? Check. Perfect bespoke cocktails? Check. The best burger in Pittsburgh (including my and everyone's deservedly beloved Tessaro's)? Check.

We had the perogies one with kimchi and the other with kielbasa. Both were excellent. We shared a goose egg flan with kumquat preserves. Again excellent.
