Burgh’ers has an authentic “Pittsburgh” flair, from the locally sourced ingredients to the names of the menu items. Many of the craft burgers are named after Pittsburgh neighborhoods, such as the Morningside Burger (topped with an egg and bacon) and the Polish Hill burger (topped with pierogies).
In Harmony, Burgh’ers became a favorite spot for locals to enjoy a farm-to-table experience.
In 2015, Burgh’ers was one of five restaurants in the nation recognized by the James Beard Foundation in the first Better Burger Project™ contest, which awarded restaurants that created delicious, healthy and sustainable burgers by blending ground meat with finely chopped mushrooms.
The Lawrenceville location features a similar menu to that of the Harmony location, but the décor definitely pays tribute to the city. It features Western Pa. wooden tabletops, reclaimed lighting from Construction Junction in the Strip District and bar stools inspired by chairs that were used in PA paper mills. The works of local artists will also be featured throughout the space.

Entrepreneur and Chef Fiore Moletz is the founder of the award-winning Burgh’ers and Della Terra Italian Bistro. Moletz’s passion for local, organic food began when he was a young boy in the North Hills of Pittsburgh, helping his grandmother in the kitchen and garden to create fresh, quality meals. At age 15, he started working in the restaurant industry as a busboy, working his way through several Pittsburgh restaurants, including as a sous chef at Lidia’s in the Strip District and IL Pizzaiolo in Mt.
