Still Waiting on Pita Pit Downtown


Gut Check first learned at the beginning of July that national chain Pita Pit planned to open its first area location at 200 North Ninth Street, the space previously occupied by Baladas Bistro. This morning, I drove by the location, and the restaurant certainly looks ready to go, right down to the refrigerator stocked with bottled soft drinks.

A comment by the restaurant on its own Facebook page indicated that as of two weeks ago, the restaurant was still waiting on inspections. Attempts to reach the restaurant at the number listed on that Facebook page have so far been unsuccessful. More as I learn it.
