You love pierogies — but we already knew that.
After sifting through your nominations, The Incline narrowed the nods down to 32 contenders for our March Madness-style bracket. The list includes sellers that specialize in pierogies, restaurants with interesting pierogi menu items, churches with regular sales, and pierogies that are only available a few times a year.
Nominators told us over and over that their criteria included dough quality, the ratio of filing to dough, and how close they are to pierogies made by grandma. We heard from readers who are willing to drive 80 miles to get the delicacies, who ate the same pierogies for two meals in 24 hours, and who turned eating pierogies into a tradition with out-of-town friends.
So without further ado, meet the 32 contenders in our Ultimate Pittsburgh Pierogi Bracket by checking out the guide at the bottom of this page — and vote for your favorites. (Click the bracket below to enlarge it, or download a PDF version here.)
