Just moved to pittsburgh
I just moved to the area and was wondering if anyone had any ideas of somewhere to get really good clam chowder, seafood, italian, and doughnuts. I know it seems random, but I have family in town that are wondering where to get this stuff. Thanks for any help you guys can give me!
www.pennavefishcompany.com in the Strip District should be a good start for Clam Chowder and other seafood. Fish Mkt with some items to eat in - not a restaurant per se.
We like Girasole in Shadyside for Italian. Although it's had it's detractors of late. Not typical
"red sauce" joint. Generally take a look at the various Big Burrito restaurants. Point Brugge in Point Breeze. You may find City Paper and Pittsburgh magazine helpful.

To fill that sweet treat fix I can personally recommend the Oakmont bakery a little ways away from the city. Closer in, I've heard good things about Paddy Cake bakery on Liberty Ave and Dozen at a couple of locations around the city.
Some of the best clam chowder, in my opinion, can be had at Roland's in the Strip. As far as seafood, you might try out Mallorca on the South Side. Their seafood selections never fail to impress and there'll be something for the carnivores in the group as well. Italian, I would strongly recommend Dinette in East Liberty for some thin crust pizza goodness and Dish Osteria and Bar in the Southside.
