Walking into Wholey’s reminds me of my youth.
I grew up around fresh seafood. Born in New Brunswick, Canada, lobster was very prevalent in my neck of the woods. I remember my Nanny cooking them up pretty often, and I also remember getting the chance to hold one.
It’s been years since I’ve held a lobster so, compliments of a kind employee at Wholey’s in The Strip District, he handed me one from its tank and I got to take a look at it. It felt exactly as I remember, but was far heavier than I thought it would be.
If you’ve never been to Wholey’s, please make sure to make a pit stop the next time you’re in Pittsburgh. The grocery store is an icon of The Strip District and is filled with regional foods, a sushi bar, and of course, seafood.
