Are you vegan, vegetarian or just curious?

I was once a vegetarian for about 13 years. Then incorporated fish into my diet. Then I got into macrobiotic eating. Now I guess you could call me a locovore. I eat mostly a vegetarian diet, with exceptions.

What is your favorite local vegan-friendly restaurant?

I haven't been in Pittsburgh long enough to find one! Any recommendations? I used to live in San Francisco, where my favorite vegan restaurant was the Millennium. Sooooo Gooood. I have their cookbook, but I can rarely find all the right ingredients!

Are you the only vegan or vegetarian in your family?

NO. My brother's girlfriend is really a vegan. And she grows and dries her own legumes, which I find impressive!

Anything else you would like to share about yourself?

No answer yet

What are you hoping to get out of this meetup?

I'm hoping to meet nice people and get to know Pittsburgh better by eating out and about a couple of times a month.


I am a grad student/puppeteer/te­acher/sometime vegetarian and I'm always looking for occasions to dine with people. I love cooking and gardening and canning stuff, so this seems like a nice group to meet people who also enjoy healthy food!
