I'm traveling to Pittsburgh, PA next month for one (1) night, and would like to know of any good restaurants. Unfortunately, to date, my reading of the message board doesn't appear to show any overwhelming amount of information.
Try emailing firstname.lastname@example.org - it's the Pittsburgh magazine address - I've enjoyed Sam Edelmann's picks in the past but can't seem to find his direct email address.
We ate at a yummy Cuban restaurant downtown near Heinz Hall - not fancy - buffet style about a year+ ago called KENNY BS at 123 Sixth St. phone 201-1626.
Some great choices to check out while you are in the 'Burgh-
Original Pgh. Fish Market
The Steelhead Grill
Terrace Room (wm. penn hotel)
Pnohm Penh (first ave.)/Lemongrass (sixth st)
Carmassi's (great crab cakes)
Bayona (Market Square)
Southside (also has the most hip bar scene):
City Grill (hamburgers)
Strip District (wholesale food and entertainment area):
Sushi Kim (Penn Ave)
Primantis (not the greatest food, but very 'Burgh)
La Foret (Highland Park)
LaCucina Flegrea (new, Squirrel Hill)
Baum Vivant (Baum Blvd)

Most not very good, the exception is 'Monterey Bay Fish Grotto - gotta go for the view
Sunday Brunch in a fab building:
