No, not your in-laws' during the holidays.


PITTSBURGH The takeout restaurant with its bright blue storefront and large, sunny yellow lettering sits among a city block of plain white brick buildings. There's no place to sit, and there's only one item on the menu: a wrap sandwich from Iran called a kubideh.

In a few months, the menu will change to food from Afghanistan, then perhaps North Korea.

This is Conflict Kitchen, a takeout cafe designed and run by artists hoping to start conversations with customers about countries in conflict with the U.S.

I'd be curious to see what's on the North Korean menu... 7 grains of rice and a skinny cockroach for each table?

In the spirit of Jane Curtin/Chevy Chase POINT : COUNTERPOINT, some Tea Party types should set up a hot dog cart outside this place and hand out these : http://www.mreinfo.com/images/hdr-085-1024.jpg
