4 Meatlessly Marvelous Pittsburgh Picks

Leila Sleiman and Natalie Fristick, co-founders of Pittsburgh VegFest and Justice for Animals, share with TABLE readers some veggie dishes that won’t leave you missing meat.

Black Cat Pizzeria: Roman-Style Pizza

Black Cat Pizzeria is doing a great job delivering high-quality Roman pizza to the masses in Pittsburgh. They are found on IG only. It’s an Instagram secret. Veggie options abound.

Chick Habit at Onion Maiden:Vegan Fried Chicken Sandwich

639 E. Warrington Avenue
While popular vegan restaurant Onion Maiden recently announced it was closing its physical location, we’re lucky to have them and their sister operation, Chick Habit, remain as pop-ups. This Chick Habit sandwich is always a huge hit at VegFest!

Sugar Spell Scoops: Ice Cream

1014 N. Canal Street
A sundae counts as a dish, correct? Sugar Spell Scoops is constantly changing its specials, and there’s always something colorful, creative, and whimsical.

Chip and Kale: Broccoli Cheddar Soup

2012 Broadway Avenue
We have been really into meal delivery lately, and Chip and Kale has knocked it out of the park for our family! The broccoli cheddar soup (not always on the menu) recently topped my list of favorite dishes: with chunks of potatoes and a creamy base, it tastes like a loaded baked potato soup.
