With a conveyer belt sushi bar already cranking out a wide variety of rolls and other options at the SouthSide Works, SomeraRoad has recruited another new Asian restaurant to the complex representing a relatively rare style of cuisine for Pittsburgh.
It’s called Top Pot Hotpot & Korean BBQ and is slated to take a 6,000-square-foot restaurant space at 2929 East Carson St. at the SouthSide Works expected to open next year.
Offering a blend of Chinese and Korean cuisine, the restaurant is the second at SouthSide Works by the same New York-based operator, which is bringing Nan Xiang Xiao Long Bao, focused on cuisine from northern China to the Box Office at SouthSide Works.
The new restaurant will join the already popular Kura Revolving Sushi Bar, Jeni’s Ice Cream, the Speckled Egg and Commonplace Coffee among the relative newcomers to the rejuvenating SouthSide Works complex.
SomeraRoad has also added a host of other upgrades to the SouthSide Works including a new court to accommodate basketball and pickle ball, a dog park and a revamped plaza featuring a mix of food vendors.
The company estimates that it has invested more than $100 million in the complex since it bought it in 2018 and projects it will be finished building out The Park, a 247-unit apartment complex on a riverfront site, in 2024.
