Elevating the Pittsburgh Dining Experience
Rated Four Diamond by AAA, Altius, the second restaurant concept from B DeFrancis and Chef Jessica Bauer, is quickly rising in ranks as one of the top restaurants in Pittsburgh and Western Pennsylvania.
Their first restaurant, Bistro 19, a local favorite in Mt. Lebanon, opened in 2006 and continues to enjoy great success. When the old Georgetowne Inne became available, they believed it was their destiny to open a new fine dining concept on Mt. Washington. They embarked on building a space around the idea that dining is much more than merely eating.
As Executive Chef & Partner of Altius, Jessica Bauer’s approach to contemporary American cuisine is refined and modern with a respect for the integrity and quality of her ingredient driven menu. Your first visit may be for the view from Mt. Washington, but you will return again and again to enjoy one of Pittsburgh’s premiere fine dining experiences. With modern surroundings and higher hospitality, every part of your experience has been considered and designed with care.
