Ok, allow me to be straight. When I return to the states in about 3 months time I am looking to possibly move to Pittsburgh to gain experience and really get my career moving. The major questions that I have are, how is the food and job market in Pittsburgh? I would also like to know, even though I know its not food related, tips and just overall advice that someone would give to a 24 year old doing this. It time in my life to get the ball rolling and start to establish myself in fine-dining even at the level of prep cook. Everyone has to start somewhere. Any advice would be appreciated.
Life in Pittsburgh for a youngster
Our daughter and her family moved to Pittsburgh eight or nine years ago, and they all have loved every minute of it. It is a beautiful city - since they tore down the steel mills, you can breathe again - and we love to visit them every chance we get. There is a vibrant food/restaurant scene, and you should be able to find whatever kind of experience you are looking for.
Go for it!
