Bartending Blog

Anthony a recent graduate from Elite Bartending School was hired to tend bar at Walnut Grove. Walnut Grove is located in Fox Chapel at the Waterworks Mall. Walnut Grove is the sister restaurant to Walnut Grove in Wexford and Walnut Grill in Shadyside.

I have enjoyed all three restaurants, but I think Walnut Grove is my favorite, why you ask?

Because I know I am going to receive great service and great food at Walnut Grove in the Waterworks Mall, and a special treat is Anthony from Elite Bartending School is tending bar there. He really enjoys his position as a bartender at Walnut Grove, stop by and see Anthony tell him I sent you! Walnut Grove has a wonderful Wednesday night lineup, live music as well as half wine bottle special. On a special Saturday night you can enjoy a special cocktail or beer special. Walnut Grove has a fantastic Walnut Salmon, salmon that is pan seared with a walnut crust and a mandarin orange marmalade glaze.

So if you’re in the mood for a really great salmon dish, try a glass of a lighter-bodied Pinot Noir it is a great call for this wonderful salmon dish. I felt your eye bug out; she is suggesting a pinot Noir?

A red wine with fish? Yes the tradition was always serve a white wine with fish, it takes the guess work out of what to serve for dinner, but trust me a glass of Pinot Noir is the perfect wine for salmon. The field of available, delicious red wine is so large and diverse now you have to try it. Make reservations for Walnut Grove online or by phone and ask to be near the bar so you can wave to Anthony, ONE OF Elite Bartending School’s many employed graduates!
