Legume and Butterjoint will be closed on Monday, March 10th for
a staff retreat.
Legume is a family-run restaurant located in the North Oakland neighborhood
of Pittsburgh. The original 34-seat Legume opened in 2007 in Regent Square with
the goal of serving simple seasonal food in a gracious and friendly
manner. In 2011, Legume moved to its current, larger
location. Having more kitchen space allows the cooks to do more
in-house processing such as whole animal butchery, grinding of grains for
polentas and pastas, and preserving large amounts of vegetables for winter
through fermentation and canning. The crux of our cooking is to stay
connected as much as possible to our local food shed throughout the year in
order to minimize the use on industrially-farmed foods in our cooking.
