The Commoner is anything but common. American classics with a touch of the unexpected are at the heart of this Downtown Pittsburgh restaurant. The vibrant design recalls Pittsburgh’s industrial past and complements a kitchen that excels at adding modern flourishes to classic comforts. Our culinary team serves an authentic, locally-focused, ingredient-driven menu made to pair with our robust selection of local beers and craft spirits to complete the American tavern feel.
