A Soulful Taste of the Burgh

       Established in 2019 in commemoration of Pittsburgh's past food service pioneers and entrepreneurs, such as:
  • Benjamin Richards, who, by 1788, set-up the first Black Butchery in Downtown Pittsburgh on 3rd avenue (current-Day #1 PPG Plaza);
  • Charles Richards, who, by 1795, owned the first Black Restaurant & Lodge on Ferry street (present-Day Stanwix Street);
  • Rev. John C. Peck who in 1838 opened the first Oyster House and Ice-cream Parlor on 3rd avenue; and
  • John R. Pulpress & Benjamin Pulpress who owned and operated the first Black Fish Stall inside Market Square and at The Allegheny Market House (Northside) on 26th & First Street
