Ditka’s Restaurant

Football veteran and Pittsburgh-native, Mike Ditka, has several high-quality national restaurants. Locations include, Chicago, Phoenix, Arlington Heights, Oakbrook and two Pittsburgh locations – one in Robinson and his most recent here in Wexford, conveniently located at 12980 Perry Highway between Wexford and Cranberry.

The popularity and success of Ditka’s Restaurant is not just due to its celebrity owner, but its continued dedication of each staff member to ensure all guests have such a pleasurable dining experience that each guest will want to return.

To make sure this goal is a touchdown of success, Mike Ditka has appointed executive chef, Adam Luiso, to take care of his guests at the Wexford location. Chef Adam began as a sous chef for Ditka’s Restaurant in Robinson, then was promoted to executive sous chef and upon his promotion to executive chef was appointed to head-up the newly-acquired kitchens in Wexford.

“Every dish receives focus and attention at Ditka’s Restaurant,” explains Chef Adam. “We work with a local seafood company that delivers high quality, fresh – never frozen fish and shellfish to our store six days a week.   Our hand cut chops and meats come directly from Meats by Linz in Illinois.   We have a great farm to table program with our produce vendor to ensure that we serve as much local produce as possible.   Our long-standing relationships with our vendors help us to create the finest opportunity for the butcher-to-table and farm-to-table experience.”

“The focus of excellence that we place into our food also extends into our wine culture,” continues Chef Adam.  Their towering “Coach’s Reserve” wine cabinets are one of the first things you see when walking into the restaurant.  Ditka’s has won multiple awards for their extensive wine list, including the “Award of Excellence” from Wine Spectator.   While we love to find unique and bold cabernets and merlots pair well with our meats, we also have a broad variety of whites within our wine portfolio.

  “Also, we take all special requests very seriously,” says Chef Adam, “from special occasions to food allergies, we have open and effective communication among staff members to ensure a safe and pleasurable time at Ditka’s Restaurant.”

If a guest does have a food allergy, the guest should alert the server. “Then, we have a series of processes in the kitchen that ensures no cross-contamination and that the dish is prepared correctly for the guest while still maintaining delicious and enjoyable cuisine,” notes Chef Adam.

In addition to awards for their wine, the quality of Ditka’s Restaurant and cuisine has been recognized with several national awards, including the “Certificate of Excellence” by Trip Advisor and the “Diner’s Choice Award” from Open Table.
