Easy on the caps there buddy.

When did they close down?

Amazing how much money they put into that place...so predictable that it would never last!

Pittsburgh seems to be where kosher restaurants go to die.

Pittsburgh should import their Challah from the Bagel Shoppe in Cleveland...now they make great Challah!

Although Pittsburghers do have a strange fascination with Ungers Challah imported from Cleveland.  My principal even once told me that Ungers Challah is the best thing that comes out of Cleveland...
