Wanting to have a special experience with a friend from Seton Hill University, I decided to start my weekend at a local restaurant in Downtown Greensburg. We chose to have dinner at JCorks Restaurant, located at 25 East Pittsburgh Street.
We had originally wanted to dine in the patio, but the gloomy weather altered our plans. Given the appealing nature of the patio, we want to return to eat outside. We were seated in the front dining area, across from the bar. The restaurant offers a cozy and private dining area for its guest.
Wanting to preserve a historical building in Greensburg, while blending contemporary style, the owners of JCorks renovated the building in 2010. Beige walls, gold chandeliers and the large windows framed in the original trim providing a lot of natural light, create an atmosphere that is both comfortable and unique to the customer.
The service at JCorks is excellent. We arrived at the restaurant around 7pm and were seated within 10 minutes. Our server was attentive to our needs and assisted us with food and beverage selection by offering several options. It was difficult to decide as we found a few items on the menu very interesting.
JCorks’ menu features traditional classics as well as new and contemporary dishes. For dinner, I decided on the Chicken Parmesan pasta and was not disappointed with my decision. This lightly breaded chicken breast is served with homemade marina sauce and garlic bread over linguini. I am a big pasta lover and was pleased with this delectable entrée. With my pasta, I enjoyed a delicious Coconut Mojito which our waiter referred to me. My friend opted on the Lobster Riscotto pasta for dinner. This dish features garlic and butter poached Maine lobster tail over creamy parmesan riscotto. I tried a bite; it was so good!
As we left JCorks full and happy, my friend and I concluded that JCorks in downtown Greensburg would be a place for us to visit more often as well as a place to recommend to our friends!
