Just in time for a delicious holiday season, the Dec. 5 introduction of Market District Express brings the best of Giant Eagle's Market District food stores into the company's first innovative neighborhood restaurant dining and food shopping experience. Located on Route 19 and Circle Road in McMurray, the new store concept combines fresh, chef-created meals to eat-in or take-out with a carefully curated selection of traditional and specialty groceries.

"As a company, Giant Eagle is always looking for ways to continue to enhance and expand our multi-format strategy to anticipate and exceed ever-evolving customer needs," said Giant Eagle CEO Laura Karet. "Market District Express is the next step in the development of our concepts, combining a modern dining experience in a contemporary rustic atmosphere, with a grocery selection that allows area customers to shop close for their everyday needs."

"We've brought our passion for food to this new smaller footprint while continuing to refine our take on restaurant dining," Karet added. "The chefs at Market District Express have created an exciting menu of meals prepared to order, brought directly to your table and served with unsurpassed quality, and freshness."

The breakfast menu features unique twists on popular breakfast fare like vanilla-buttermilk French toast and breakfast burritos topped with tomatillo chipotle salsa made with organic and farm fresh ingredients. Customers can also choose from custom-made omelets, fresh-baked bagels, mixed berries, and breakfast sandwiches for those on the go. 

The lunch and dinner menu offers a wide selection of made-to-order sandwiches, sides and entrees including stone-hearth baked pizzas, gourmet burgers, fresh made-daily soups, herb-roasted salmon, flat iron steak and pommes frites, served to your table by Market District Express Team Members aided by a new electronic direct table delivery system.

Additionally, the restaurant at Market District Express offers hand-made sushi rolls made with the freshest ingredients, a licensed Starbucks coffee kiosk, and the company's first self-serve frozen yogurt bar with multiple flavors and a wide assortment of toppings.
