HILLSBURGH – A well-known Hillsburgh-area chef is looking to cook up more change through a large renovation project at her former restaurant.
Chef Pam Fanjoy is converting her old restaurant on Trafalgar Road in Hillsburgh into what she’s calling a fully accessible culinary studio to reignite tourism to the region that will also act as the headquarters for a not-for-profit organization.
“While we had a very successful destination restaurant in Hillsburgh for five years before the pandemic hit, we were a 30-seat restaurant and it just became economically unsustainable between the cost of inflation and three shutdowns during COVID,” Fanjoy said, adding the restaurant officially closed last March.
