Not exactly. Perhaps it's because I grew up in a backwater area, but I've never heard people say "Let's go get fro-yo" prior to moving to the East End.

FroYo is a brand name. http://froyoyogurt.com/

macaron bakeries have been a thing in nyc and other big cities for a few years now; they kinda supplanted cupcakes. we'll probably see the same thing with macaron bakeries as we did with cupcake bakeries - a bunch will open, then most but not all of them will close and/or diversify. and meanwhile nyc must have moved on to crepe cakes or something.

I've noticed the "collaborative dinner" trend has really taken off in Pittsburgh lately... I'd like to attend one of these some day.

On the Table: Chefs go beyond their neighborhoods to share their specialties - Pittsburgh Post-Gazette


Quote:
These collaborative dinners -- during which chefs and or bartenders pair up for tasting menus or family-style dinners -- have not only been popular in New York, but they're becoming commonplace in Pittsburgh, too.

And they're not just relegated to food pairings with one chef. Tamari in Lawrenceville recently hosted a 20-seat cocktail pairing dinner with Spencer Warren of the newly opened Acacia on the South Side. A six-course dinner cost $80. At the end of January a group of chefs, which will include those from Legume in Oakland, Stagioni on the South Side, Spoon and the soon-to-open Notion, both in East Liberty, will host a dinner called The Last Supper. Details are in the works.

The last time I remember fro-yo being a big thing, SCR would have been learning his ABCs or, at most, how to write in cursive, so he would have probably not noticed. It was a long time ago, 1985 or so. It did get mentioned a few times in the Bloom County comic strip.

Just noticed on Craigslist that a 'wichcraft ("hand food" chain from Tom Colicchio, head judge Top Chef) appears to be in Pittsburgh's immediate future. Pittsburgh would be the 4th city to have one after NY/SF/Vegas. And they're paying $12/hr, which is huge in this market for foodservice jobs.

Is the Arby's on Wood Street closed for good? Looks like Mixsters on Grant Street is closed.

Here's 'wichcraft's website, looks like a pretty good sandwich place. Interesting that they'd pick Pittsburgh as their fourth city. Looks like they're primarily an NYC chain, there's only one site each in SF and Las Vegas. The job posting doesn't say where it'll be, just "Pittsburgh".
