Our Neighborhood

Much like Pittsburgh itself, the city’s resurgent and resilient Deutschtown neighborhood is in the midst of a new and exciting chapter in its two-century history. Originally the commercial heart of the former Allegheny City, and home to a large number of primarily German immigrants, the East Ohio Street corridor is bustling again. Not with the long-ago din of cobblers, milliners, cigar makers (and brothels), but their 21st century counterparts: entrepreneurs, design firms, tech start-ups, specialty retailers, and innovative restaurants.

"Deutschtown is like Williamsburg in Brooklyn and Fishtown in Philadelphia: diverse, dynamic, and evolving."

The Building

514 East Ohio Street has sat vacant for many years. Currently undergoing a total gut renovation for Fig & Ash, the newly reborn space will house the dining room, bar, kitchen, and outdoor courtyard. With exterior design by architect Bob Baumbach and interior design by Michael McAllister, Fig & Ash will be a welcoming, warm, and modern space centered around its heart and literal hearth -- a custom, locally built wood fire oven from Pittsburgh-based design studio Temper and Grit. Our 1800 square-foot ground floor’s dining room and bar area will accommodate 52 guests with an outdoor, intimate courtyard boasting space for 22 patrons. A private dining room and event space is being planned for the basement with seating for 24 guests.

“A comfortable new destination that the neighbors—and the whole region—can be proud of.”
