1990 Monongahela Ave., Swissvale. facebook.com/yoursweetoasis
Swissvale’s Dari Delite served the neighborhood from 1956 to 2018, and is now reopening under new ownership. Two Swissvale residents, Chelsea Burket and Gabe Tilove, bought the property earlier this year, according to a report from Good Food Pittsburgh. Burket doesn’t have any formal training in restaurants, but tells Good Food Pittsburgh she has dreamed of owning her own food-based business for a while. She says she walked past Dari Delite almost every day, and found the owner’s contact information. She’s hoping to have the place open by Memorial Day weekend, and will serve soft serve, Blizzards, milkshakes, cones, and sundays. Vegan and dairy-free options are not available yet, but Burket plans to add them.
