DESCRIPTION

Hip, exotically decorated Kaya, from the award-winning Big Burrito family of Pittsburgh restaurants (Casbah, Eleven, Mad Mex and Soba, among them), features one of the area's most inventive bars as well as an ever-changing, innovative Caribbean menu. Brick, steel, textiles and dark wood set the scene in the dining room, where diners can make a meal of several small plates, called tropas, or concentrate on the entrées, known as entradas. Small plates can include island delicacies, sweet potato fries or black bean quesadillas. At lunch, sandwich options abound including a delectable roast pork torta or an avocado and fried egg sandwich. Entrées can include paella, grouper, flank steak, pork tenderloin and Jamaican green curry vegetables. The extensive bar menu offers an array of microbrews, wines and cocktails such as dark rum mint juleps and mango mojitos.

"Don't miss dessert: Try banana chocolate bread pudding or a chocolate pecan torte with spiced pecans and chipotle ice cream."
- Gayot
