This project was the first major new restaurant in downtown Pittsburgh in 2017 and the first solo-gig for Chef Derek Stevens. The 170-seat, 7,5000sf restaurant, spans three floors and has a large square bar on the middle floor which can be accessed from Oliver Street or through the Union Trust building; the third floor has seating and private dining areas, along with the open kitchen which contains a wood fire grill and rotisserie. When Stevens acquired the space in the ever popular Union Trust building, he envisioned keeping many of the details that were original to the space and staples of the iconic Pittsburgh building.
The restaurant is just one of the hallmarks of the $100M renovation to Pittsburgh’s Union Trust Building, which has been ongoing since the building was purchased for development in 2014 by Davis Companies.
“We are extremely satisfied with the entire process here [at Union Standard] and honestly, the management of construction has been wonderful and very smooth. We’re very excited about the space.”
