Recap: New Ken’s Second Annual Restaurant Rambler

This weekend, the town of New Kensington hosted its second Restaurant Rambler where guests participated in a dine-around event with 10 local businesses. The town is working to bring awareness of their awesome small businesses to residents here and beyond in Pittsburgh, and aiming to revive the neighborhood in these post-pandemic days.

Each guest, including myself, was handed a map of the tour, and we began our self-paced tour at 11am on 5th Ave. It was so great to meet each business owner and learn more about their history and offerings.

This dine-around event featured samples and sips from these small businesses:

Voodoo Brewing Co. – New Kensington Pub

Fox’s Pizza Den New Kensington

Sweet Alchemy Bake Shop

Sweet Tillies

Ashley’s Kitchen

Eazer’s Restaurant & Deli

Farm House Fresh

Fat Cat’s Fundraisers

Panda Chinese

Steel Cup Coffee Roasters

Places like Farm House Fresh PGH celebrated its new shop in the courtyard off 5th, and others like Sweet Alchemy Bake Shop showcased their new location among visitors. We also got to see furry friends by the window at Frankie’s Friends new location.
