Pittsburgh cafe offers cuisine from the U.S. conflict du jour
The Conflict Kitchen specializes in dishes and discourse from countries involved in scraps with America. Cuban food is next in line.

PITTSBURGH — Jon Rubin had an important question, and he knew where to find the answer: at the North Korean Embassy in Cuba, which he was visiting in March on a business trip.
