Swanky, Contemporary Eddie Merlot’s Opens in Pittsburgh

Eddie Merlot’s hit its 10th-unit milestone in late spring in Pittsburgh, Pa., signaling the kickoff of a development surge for the Fort Wayne, Ind.-based upscale steakhouse chain. The 12,000-square-foot restaurant sits on the ground floor of the 60-story Hertz Gateway Center in the city’s center. The building’s owner, Hertz Investment Group, is the landlord at Eddie Merlot’s Louisville location, as well.
