Zenith Restaurant in Pittsburgh


The Zenith

Old hat, new hat

evolving city that lives without me

thick gray glass

heavy water drinking

fluffed chair cushion

my grandma would sew.


Beneath the pressed tin

a concrete building

treasures hold an evening

mocking, pretend, antiquated dining

spoon in a silver kitchen.


My brother introduced me to this South Side restaurant that serves vegetarian dishes among unforgettable antiques. The table is set from your grandma’s curio cabinet. Expect an experience. We drank from old goblet glasses, ate off of gold rimmed china, and made room for desert. Enjoy the popular brunch served on Sunday, or dinner on a rainy Friday night as you slip in off of the car-packed streets.
