Places to Eat with Two Reasons to Go

Dine and support the depressed neighborhood of Braddock @ Superior MotorsKevin Sousa’s nationally-recognized destination restaurant. A  Food & Wine Restaurant of 2018, Superior Motors hires from the local community and provides discounts to dining guests from the surrounding Braddock community once famous for its high murder rate, tattooed mayor (now Lt. Governor), and talented first-lady who founded the almost equally famous Free Store. But for Superior Motors, it is now the food that attracts national press. The food is delicious and beautiful—from appetizer, through entrée, to dessert, with a wine and cocktail list as distinctive and the food menu. Reservations are necessary and ride share the best mode of transport.
