My sole remaining favorite vegan restaurant in Pittsburgh is closing. The owner wants to focus on his Allegro Hearth location in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood, which I’m not familiar with.
It probably isn’t quite as dire as I’m feeling, but I’m increasingly feeling that Pittsburgh is not a place for me.
The other two restaurants I’m familiar with are Fortuitea in North Strabane, which is run by a Jewish family whose patriarch is a brilliant chef but gets his information from the same sources as often anti-Semitic white supremacists; and Onion Garden, which relies much too heavily on onions for flavor. As to the latter, I’m hypersensitive to onions, peppers, and cilantro, so Onion Garden isn’t the place for me.
There are other vegan restaurants, but their hours and locations make them hard for me to get to.
