Most Oakland restaurants still open for take-out


Oakland's restaurants are working to adapt to the recent shifts the Pitt community has made to remote work and learning in the wake of the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic.

Restaurants in Oakland aren’t alone in the new challenges they have to face. On March 16, Gov. Tom Wolf ordered nonessential businesses in the commonwealth to close their doors.

With these new restrictions, restaurants are currently not allowed to seat customers inside. This caused some restaurants in Oakland to suspend operations.

However, many have decided to increase their takeout and/or delivery options, according to the Oakland Business Improvement District.

Here are some of the Oakland restaurants still open for business:
