Pittsburgh chef named to Zagat list; Downtown diner moving

The prestigious Zagat dining guide's "30 under 30" national list of rising culinary and hospitality talents to watch includes a Pittsburgh name among them.

Becca Hegarty, the 27-year-old chef and owner of Bitter Ends Garden & Luncheonette in Verona, was named to the list which was released Tuesday. Ms. Hegarty has previously worked under Sonja Finn at Dinette and at The Café Carnegie. Her food is available weekly at the East Liberty and Bloomfield Farmer's Markets.

Cherrie’s Diner, on Forbes Avenue just off of the eastern side Market Square in Downtown Pittsburgh, will move to the other side of the square, to the space where Franktuary hot dog shop has vacated. Franktuary owner Tim Tobitsch confirmed the sale to the Post-Gazette last week, but it was under wraps until closing. It has since been released by the Sofranko Advisory Group, which helped furnish the sale.
