The Supper Club
Local Farm to Table Dining in the Heart of Westmoreland County
by Karen Fetter
Westmoreland County residents have been waiting for the kind of cutting edge restaurant typically found only in large, metropolitan areas. A dining destination that offers a high-class image yet has affordable pricing. A trendy gathering place that has beautiful scenery mixed with a rich history and character. The kind of establishment where friends, family, and companions can experience an entire, unhurried evening of enjoyment. The wait is finally over now that The Supper Club has arrived.
The Supper Club is located in the historic 100-year-old Greensburg Train Station in downtown Greensburg. With a lot of hard work and a keen eye for decorating, owners Ashlee and Greg Andrews and Deb Driggers have transformed the station into an extravagant dining experience. The two-level restaurant offers several different settings to accommodate various dining preferences, such as the Gastro Pub for casual dining, drinking and dancing; the Farm to Table Dining Room for a more intimate setting; the Wine Loft for privacy; and the Chef’s Table for a one-of-a kind dining experience. But what is so amazing about each of these dining areas is the quality and presentation of the food that is served in them.
What is truly unique and special to the Supper Club is the Farm to Table Dining Room created and led by Master Chef Greg Andrews. The farm to table concept is one where the restaurant buys local, sustainable organic food and creates weekly menu items featuring the ingredients. Everything is made from scratch along with fresh made desserts and a full wine-by-the-bottle list.
“We want to be the first in the area to introduce this type of cooking,” explained Deb Driggers. “We make everything from scratch and do not freeze anything. We even make our own condiments, breads, and pastries. It’s difficult, but fun to see the look on people’s faces when they see how delicious it is.”
The Supper Club utilizes over two dozens of local farmers, foragers, and producers. In addition it is the only restaurant in the area to use exclusively only cheeses from PA state creameries.
“We believe that food that is made fresh and grown locally just tastes better,” said Driggers.
The Farm to Table Dining Room is not the only area of the restaurant where a customer can experience delectable local food items. One of the newest trends among fine restaurants is the Chef’s Table concept. Choose the Chef’s Table and you choose an unforgettable gastronomic adventure, sitting in the heart of a working kitchen while you experience the creative process behind your meal. Chef Greg prepares an eight-course tasting menu along with specific wine pairings to enjoy throughout the meal. It truly is a one-of-a-kind dining experience.
Sometimes customers just want to enjoy some of their favorite foods such as hamburgers and pizza. The Supper Club understands that and, in response, has created the Gastro Pub.
The Gastro Pub surrounds the main bar and features seasonal cocktails, premium spirits, wines by the glass, and craft
beers along with updated casual fare from unique burgers and pizzas to interesting appetizers, fresh salads, sustainable
seafood dishes and modernized comfort food with a “something for everyone” menu. To top it all off, the main floor turns into a dance area on Saturday nights while featuring music from local performers.
If you are looking for a more intimate space to socialize, then the Wine Loft Lounge is the place for you. It is a chic and sophisticated seating area with a wine bar overlooking the main Gastro Pub. Guests order from a variety of wines along with local artisanal cheeses, cured meats, and specially paired appetizers.
Everyone can be accommodated at the Supper Club. Whether you are leaving the theater, entertaining business travelers, meeting with friends or family, the Supper Club is the perfect place to make a reservation. In fact, it is the only area restaurant to utilize the Open Table Reservation System at www.opentable.com.
Guests are able to make reservations through this online system 24 hours a day. A link to the website can also be found on the Supper Club’s own website at www.SupperClubGreensburg.com.
Through the Open Table reservation system, the restaurant also receives customer feedback and because of the outstanding reviews it achieved since its opening The Supper Club has been awarded the 2010 Diners Choice Award with a four star rating.
The Supper Club also hosts private events and promotions making it a leader in hospitality and in the culinary field. It has extended itself by participating in beer and wine tastings, cooking classes, farmers markets, and community and charitable events. “We feel that we are bringing a completely new style of dining to the area and because of that, educating and marketing to our guests will be a key factor in our success,” said Ashlee Andrews, general manager.
