Food Systems, Chapter 1: A Night Out is a film that charts the history of Pittsburgh restaurants from the late 70s to today, from the introduction of French cuisine to the integration of world flavors and local food sources. Along the way, universal topics like the steps to open and run a restaurant, restaurant life, how class impacts restaurant choice, gentrication, sexism in the industry, and labor trends are discussed. Pittsburgh's food scene has expanded exponentially in the past five years, but the changes relate to changes in food across the country. This film shows the passion, energy, and innovation that contribute to a growing food culture.
