We became attached!
Atria's is an "eating experience" in Pittsburgh. Living in Scotland, I love to recommend unusual places. Pittsburgh is unusual! For me the Scottish connection is twofold. Firstly the Scot, Andrew Carnegie was born in Dunfermline, (my place of birth) and founded the most successful steel company in the world. Secondly, Pittsburgh is the place I discovered a small organization with a big dream, “Value of the Person Consultants”! VOP is run by an American war hero and business visionary, Wayne Alderson. Read “Stronger than Steel” by RC Sproull. Back to Atrias. Now a chain of restaurants that serves great, affordable food by people who value their customers and make the eating experience a joy and fun! My emotional links are many on my frequent trips to Pittsburgh but one stands out and is unrepeatable. I was visiting Pittsburgh in October 2006 and, for the first time, my wife Ruby was with me. The visit coincided with her 60th birthday. We were invited to dine at Atrias by relations of the owners. They had arranged a surprise party which was unforgettable! Not only was the food, service and company great it was also Atrias “Doo Wap” night! More than that Johnnie Angel, (one of the proprietors, and former singer with Chuck Berry) sang “Ruby, Ruby” for my wife, Ruby! I was a fan of Atrias before but then we became attached!
