I have been to Brillobox twice in the last few weeks and I LOVE it. I thought it wouldn't really be my scene (think lots of piercings and tatoos), but the place is very cozy. If you like Tang (yes, the 80's orange drink), you must try their Tang Margarita..it is amazing. I tried the Cuban sandwhich and the Eggplant Caviar; both were delicious.

There aren't many instances where I would overlook waiting 40 minutes for food or accept sub par food. However, Brillobox is a place where I see the promise, I saw others meals and I spent the night chatting with the crowd of people.

Brillobox is a now 10 week-old bar/restaurant/performance venue. It's along the Penn Avenue stretch between Bloomfield and Lawrenceville - near or in the Penn Avenue Art Initiative area. Named as an homage to Andy Warhol, Billbox is owned by a 20-30 something couple, boomerangs who came back to Pittsburgh from living and working in New York City- Brillobox has the right mix of food, drink and atmosphere to lure the hipsters, beatniks, alternatives and other interesting folks in droves. This place is a gem and probably the seed of much more.

On tap they have only good beer - no macros. Selection includes offerings from East End Brewing and Troegs. 8-12 tap handles total. In bottles they hide and contain the other beer, those nasty macro beers.

Atmosphere at Brillobox is cozy, be it a tad too dark in the bar area. The walls have some art from the owners creative streaks. Upstairs is live performance space that had a singer songwriter and a $5 cover charge. Downstairs was packed so I decided to mingle freely there.

Nice to see both the owners working the whole night. The place was packed in two waves - dinner and the later drinks crowd. So no standing around for either of them. Nice people who were good at serving the drinks and very attentive to note a nearing empty glass.

The food looked marvelous at other tables - so for once I can say the veggie opinion is narrow and I should steer people properly. Try the food, but beware of the veggie food.

I really enjoyed my time here and the crowd it attracts. I will be back as soon as possible to take more in. This is now my favorite place in Pittsburgh to have a drink and talk with others looking to socialize.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has a good piece on Brillobox: http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/05349/622363.stm
