B52 suggested incredible vegan cuisine visitors to Pittsburgh for the past six years. Now a number of changes that have taken place over the years since the start of the pandemic have led to the owner of the restaurant announcing the permanent closure of the Lawrenceville Café.
In a post posted on B52’s Instagram page, owner Omar Obuheile wrote:
“Few people open a restaurant with a plan to close it in six years. It was certainly not in my plans. But life circumstances are changing. Last year I turned 50. And then about six months ago my mother died suddenly. I learned how to cook from my mom, and many of her entered the tastes and ideas that formed B52, the most basic of which was that food should always be prepared from scratch using fresh ingredients ”.
The B52 was known for its inventive, comforting Mediterranean food and desserts, as well as an impressive café-bar and drinks such as homemade kombucha.
The message goes on to say that Obuheile shares his history in the Pittsburgh food industry and thanks visitors to his restaurant who have been coming to this place for years. Obuheile says his other business, the Allegro Hearth artisan bakery in Squirrel Hill, will remain open.
“I want to thank you all for your support over the years. Your gratitude and appreciation have been sincere. I also want to thank everyone who has contributed to the success of B52 over the years. I wish you all great success in all that awaits ahead, “the statement said.
This will be the last week of serving your favorite restaurant.
