Farm-to-table dining provides an opportunity to enjoy fresh seasonal dishes — and support local farmers and small businesses. But what's so special about local and seasonal dining? Not only is the food often more delicious, but by eating local there's a smaller carbon footprint making farm-to-table dining more sustainable. Prioritizing locally sourced ingredients simultaneously benefits both the planet and Pittsburgh, which is especially significant as Earth Day approaches on April 22.

Gas stoves, ovens, and broilers cooked not just the food but also the room and everyone in it, while spewing harmful pollutants that would be illegal outdoors.
