More than 25 new food establishments open in Allegheny County

Allegheny County welcomed 17 new restaurants, two retailers, two bakeries, two coffee houses, two mobile vendors and one convenience store over the last two months.

The Allegheny County Health Department (ACHD) commended nine facilities for using trans fat-free cooking oils. They include:  Bakn, 335 E. Main St. in Carnegie; Fox’s Pizza Den, 314 Allegheny River Blvd. in Oakmont; Mekong Restaurant, 1429 Potomac Ave., and The Dor-Stop Restaurant, 1430 Potomac Ave.,  both in Dormant;  Goodfellas Deli & Draft House, 1518 Mt. Nero Road in Ohio; Franktuary, 115 Forbes Ave., and V3 Pizza, 11 Fifth Ave., both in downtown Pittsburgh;  Dar’s General Store, 709 Charters Ave. in the West End neighborhood of  Pittsburgh; and The Coal Mine, 3160 Library Road in Castle Shannon.

“The key to a healthy diet is choosing foods that have more good fats than bad fats, or trans fats,” Dr. Karen Hacker, ACHD director, said. “As part of our county-wide commitment to promoting individual and community wellness, we also look at and highlight those facilities that use trans fat-free cooking oils. We see more restaurants taking that step toward living well. These past two months, nine of the 17 eateries that opened cook with these healthier oils.”
