Food For Thought - New York Style Deli and Custom Catering- was established in 1987 by Robert Wasserman in the Shadyside area of Pittsburgh. He later moved the business to Regent Square and now its present location on Craig Street in Oakland. It is here on Craig Street that the business evolved into a restaurant. Food For Thought is the oldest running deli in Pittsburgh offering Jewish dishes. This coming year, Food For Thought will be celebrating its 25th anniversary.

We have planned and served hundreds of events, from corporate events to private parties. Our customers have told us that our food and service have been impeccable. We can handle your event from beginning to end! We look forward to serving you!
