August 2021 Pittsburgh Delicacies: New options and coming quickly

A new month has started and you know what it means. From coffee to cocktails, smoothies to sandwiches, pizzas to pick-up food, we’re back with the latest monthly food and drink information.

First of all, I want to realize how difficult it is for the Pittsburgh restaurant and hospitality community. COVID-19 as the vaccine and summer sun seemed to brighten the future Delta variant, we’re paying attention to indoor meals.

Governor Wolf said Pennsylvania is not currently considering masking requirements, CDC recommends that everyone, including those who have been vaccinated, wear a mask indoors.

Some local restaurants such as Apteca With Bloomfield Leo.Pub When Lola Bistro on the north side, proof of vaccination is required for dietary benefits.

“First and foremost, we had to protect our neighbors. This is our number one priority, ”said owner Michael Byrne House. Pittsburgh City Paper .. Michael knows that most of his customers are neighbors. “We literally do this for the people we care about. That’s it.”

Publisher’s Note: Lion. Pubs and Laura bistros are my favorites in the neighborhood. They are owned and operated by Michael and his wife Jelena. They are great people and the food and drinks are great too. Please support them if you can!

Our local restaurants are a pillar of our community and we have an obligation to tip them kindly, carefully and of course well.

For those who missed last month’s edition, find out more here .. If there’s anything missing please let us know so we can add it to the list.
