Staying in Pittsburgh - need area with good restaurants to get hotel

I will be staying in Pittsburgh this week. I usually stay in airport, but would like to stay in an interesting neighborhood that has good restaurant options. I am vegetarian and I like modern, diverse, and interesting restaurants. I like upscale, but prefer not ridiculously priced!
Any recs of what area (hotwire or priceline) is best to bid on? Any specific restaurants you would recommend? Thanks!

    1. as far as where to stay, especially if bidding, go with Downtown 4 star. Renaissance, Omni William Penn, Westin Convention Ctr and brand new Fairmont are all downtown. Check out Big Burrito family of restaurants. Kaya is in Strip as is Eleven. Shadyside, both Walnut St. & Ellsworth Ave. have dining options. I've enjoyed Girasole. Then there's Carson St. on Southside. Enjoy

      733 Copeland St Ste 1, Pittsburgh, PA 15232

      1. You might check out this place as an alternate type of place to stay. You'd be in the Shadyside and Oakland area. Also, they have their own restaurant, which is well regarded.
