Elevating the Pittsburgh Dining Experience

space1Rated Four Diamond by AAA, Altius, the second restaurant concept from B DeFrancis and Chef Jessica Bauer, has quickly risen 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. As the Pittsburgh dining scene began to prosper, they felt it was the perfect opportunity to provide the city with a new restaurant that not only offered unparalleled views, but also a truly “elevated” dining experience.


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.
