  • Kate Romane’s food has tickled my taste buds in wonderful ways since I first sampled her wares [at E2.] I often crave and rave about her meatballs, that gorgonzola mess appetizer, the spectacular salads, many pastas and surprise specials that have been part of some of my favorite meals in Pittsburgh.

  • Black Radish Kitchen (and E2 before it) under the leadership of Kate Romane and her wonderful crew, have delivered spectacular benefit parties for Quantum Theatre for the past seven years. We consider them partners in our growth of the Q Ball to its current stature as one of the most creative, fun, and profitable parties serving Pittsburgh’s non-profit arts community.

    Kate has played a leadership role in the evolution of food and the dining experience in Pittsburgh. She and her colleagues haven’t stopped at bringing us great food based on fresh, local, high-quality ingredients, in a bold, Mediterranean style.

  • If I’m having an event, I call on Kate and her team! Regardless of size or scale, Kate always has a perfect solution for the affair. From a quick little drop off for a small work event to a full luscious harvest spread, E2 (now Black Radish) has always come up with creative and tasty menus and executed with the utmost professionalism. Kate’s staff is a delight to work with, always going above and beyond to make certain the experience matches the occasion. I love Black Radish—the people, the food, the experience!

  • black radish catered my bridal shower, numerous gatherings in my home. The food is always spectacular and beautiful. People are still talking about the pasta, beautiful grilled vegetables, and gorg mess served at my shower that took place nearly 3 years ago! From the fun and fabulous bagel bar to impressive roasted salmon garnished with edible flowers to the most incredible pasta dishes and freshest salads you have ever tasted, black radish is simply the best there is. Kate and her team are the most wonderful salt of the earth people around. Perfect for every occasion.
