Larder of East End
Justin Severino and Hilary Prescott Severino opened their new concept, Larder of East End, the first week of July inside East End Brewing Company’s Larimer brewpub. Although Scott Smith, the owner of East End Brewing and the Severinos are sharing space, the two concepts are separate businesses. For Severino, Larder is a venture into more casual dining and features many smoked items such as chicken wings, a brisket sandwich and a barbecue platter. Some of Smith’s beers, such as Monkey Boy hefeweizen, feature as ingredients. For those with tykes, a kid’s menu is available with from-scratch chicken tenders and mac and cheese. Indoor and outdoor patio seating is available. 147 Julius St., Larimer; larderpittsburgh.com

Dance and sip the long summer days and nights away at AllSummr, a weekend pop-up bar in Uptown from Derek Burnell, co-owner of Round Corner Cantina, El Burro and Umami, and Michael McAllister, owner of the Urbanist Guide. Starting in late June, the group took over a vacant parking lot, adding two tents and a bar while serving refreshing tiki-esque drinks and featuring local talent such as DJ Bamboo and Huny. Before the sun goes down and the music starts, guests can stop by for family-friendly games, food trucks and barbecue parties. AllSummr is open from mid-afternoon through the evening on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, with a special focus on industry nights on Sundays with discounts on cocktails and Iron City beer until 9 p.m. 1717 Fifth Ave., Uptown; @allsummr on Instagram

Bridges and Bourbon
After many delays, this cocktail bar opened in the former Seviche space the last week of June. The bar program, overseen by sommelier and mixologist David Keating, has a modern feel, featuring ingredients such as sugar snap pea syrup, corn crisps and cherrywood smoke in its cocktails, which are divided by “light and dark spirited” offerings. Guests can also opt for a flight from the restaurant’s bourbon collection as well as canned beer and wine by the glass and bottle. James Beard semi-finalist chef David Racicot is at the helm in the kitchen, with a menu of small plates. His elevated bar fare includes riffs on favorites such as shrimp tempura and XO wings. 930 Penn Ave., Downtown; 412/586-4287, bridgesandbourbon.com

Now Closed: Casa Reyna
Casa Reyna, the restaurant below Reyna Foods closed quietly in June. Now, Strip shoppers will have to find another spot for a midday margarita. The small grocery store will remain open, while the former restaurant space will be available for events.
