Tacos - and more - are on the menu at Baby Loves Tacos, a new Mexican food eatery in Pittsburgh's Bloomfield neighborhood.

In the midst of winter, a new Bloomfield restaurant is bringing the heat.

The foodie heat, as in Baby Loves Tacos , which Pittsburgh native Zachary Shell has opened at 4508 Liberty Ave.

What started at pop-up events spawned catering and, earlier this month, the storefront opening.

The menu lists tacos, burritos, rice bowls and salads.

According to its Facebook site, one-half of the menu is vegetarian and can easily be made vegan by request.

Shell states on his site that 15 years of opening and operating restaurants, primarily in the Philadelphia area, led to a "perspective and inspired a clear vision for a progressive, civic-minded, sustainable business."

Additional plans include monthly service commitments with after school programs and outreach organizations, and summer internships to provide high school students with culinary training.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
