The Bigelow Grille located within the downtown Pittsburgh Doubletree Hotel provides an on site, contemporary dining option for hotel guests and residents. It occupies the lower level of the Doubletree Hotel, which previously housed the Ruddy Duck Restaurant. A new entry and a glass wall opens the west side of the restaurant to a large outdoor patio and a view of the colorful activity of the downtown streets.
As a hotel restaurant, the interior space had to be completely re programmed to facilitate the hotel’s breakfast, lunch, and dinner activities.
The restaurant’s bar was detailed and strategically located so that it would be disguised during breakfast, and inviting for dinner and evening entertainment events. The restaurant construction was complete in November 2005.
