Sometimes it’s not a question of “could it be done?” but rather “should it be done?”
This is true of dog pants but also food.
And it’s especially true of Primanti Bros.’ new Polish Hill sandwich, a gargantuan gastronomic mashup as tall, steep and crowded as the neighborhood it’s named for.
If peak yinzer had an official dish, this would be it.
Primanti Bros. unveiled the Polish Hill sandwich at its Market Square location today with plenty of Pittsburgh pomp and circumstance. The Mrs. T’s Pierogi Racers from PNC Park posed for photos and famed Primanti Bros. server Toni Haggerty chatted with guests while a Grammy-nominated accordion player provided background music.
Primanti Bros. teamed up with Mrs. T’s Pierogies to create the sandwich, which is available at locations in Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Maryland and Michigan now through mid-August.
“Since we have so many Polish people in town, in the Pittsburgh area, we figured ‘oh why don’t we put pierogies on it?’” Haggerty said.
We tried it out (you can watch below).
