1) The Steel Cactus Mexican Restaurante and Cantina is now open on Walnut Street above the Victoria’s Secret store (talk about a great location). Steel Cactus features authentic Mexican food, several full bars and a nice selection of tequilas. The restaurant took over the second floor space where Cozumel Restaurant was a while back. They’ve completely remodeled and added a third floor with Shadyside’s largest open air deck . The Steel Cactus was packed during Saturday night’s Jam on Walnut; the staff was friendly and efficient.
