Stephen & Susan moved with their daughter, Sharon, to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in July of 2015 to pursue an opportunity to follow their dream of opening a restaurant and catering company. In December of that same year, they opened Provision PGH at Smallman Galley. Susan and Stephen have both traveled extensively throughout Mexico over the years. They are thrilled to introduce Pittsburgh and their Northside neighbors to El Lugar and the cuisine and culture they fell in love with during their journeys.
Bienvenidos El Lugar! Our goal at El Lugar is to bring the diverse, ever-evolving, and historically & culturally-rich flavors of Mexico to Pittsburgh’s Northside and beyond. We are “The Place” to gather for dinner & drinks, weekend brunch or couple of tacos any day of the week, not just Tuesdays! Its all about homemade for us, from our tortillas for our tacos to our telera rolls for our tortas, pastries and so much more. At El Lugar, you will find the traditional Mexican flavors you love as well as amusing twists on time-honored classics.
