ABC News features Conflict Kitchen

Pittsburgh’s beloved Conflict Kitchen was recently featured in ABC News’ Lifestyle section. The restaurant serves only food from countries in conflict with the United States. 

The nonprofit takeout spot aims to make food a medium for political dialogue and is funded by grants as a part of the research center at Carnegie Mellon. The restaurant’s menu rotates through cuisine from countries like Cuba, North Korea, and Iran. 

Conflict Kitchen also hosts roundtables and events to promote political discussions. 

"In some ways, [it] was a response to what I felt wasn't in this city, which was a lot of cultural and ethnic diversity, and also a sense of being part of an international, global conversation," says Conflict Kitchen co-founder Jon Rubin.
