Dine at a Sustainable Restaurant. Pittsburgh’s dining scene continues to make headlines
as a hot spot for new restaurants and creative chefs. Now diners can “put their values where their mouth is” through a program
called Sustainable Pittsburgh Restaurant. This program connects diners with restaurants that are building community and
supporting environmentally responsible practices, so dining out can be done confidently at a place with shared values. More
than 60 establishments have earned Sustainable Pittsburgh Restaurant designation, helping to transform Pittsburgh from a
“foodie city” to a “sustainable foodie city”. To earn designation, a restaurant completes an online, self-assessment addressing
actions in the areas of energy, water, waste, food sourcing, people and nutrition. Sustainable Pittsburgh built the assessment with
guidance from local farmers, chefs, restaurateurs, food policy advocates and others. Levels of designation begin with a Bronze
Plate and advance to Platinum Plate. Three restaurants have achieved Platinum Plate designation to date, and several more are
working toward advancing their levels. Find a restaurant and check out its sustainability profile at sustainablePGHrestaurants.org.
