You could spend every night you have in Pittsburgh eating at Kaya and still feel like you went to a different restaurant each time. This Smallman Street staple serves dishes from the Caribbean Islands and South America - like plantain nachos, Yucatan hot bean dip, and a burger with Chihuahua cheese and bacon - but there’s also usually something going on. There’s Fried Chicken Thursdays, weekend brunches, monthly vegetarian prix-fixe dinners, and Happy Hour (weekdays from 4:30-6:30pm). But instead of feeling hectic or disjointed, it’s one of the most fun places you can go in the city, especially with a few friends.
