More Pittsburgh Dining Suggestions ?
Heading to Pitts next weekend for baseball, and staying at the Fairmont. This will be my third trip to the city in 4 years, and in the past have enjoyed Morton's, Piccolo Forno, Primanti's etc., but need some advice on old established restaurants, and new dining spots.
Heard good things about Salt of the Earth--what do they feature ? How about a couple ideas for steak and seafood (preferably a place that does both, well.) ? Carlton's, near the Fairmont, has a nice website...food any good ? Any info on Italian and breakfast/lunch spots would be appreciated, too.
Overall, I'd like to dine in the city, but don't mind a short cab ride to Lawrenceville etc.
Thanks, in advance for your help.

I really, really, really recommend Salt. They serve a New American menu with a modernist twist. Probably my favorite place in Pittsburgh.
they will be able to meet both requests for steak and seafood, likely in a way you haven't seen before.
if you're trying to stay in the city, I'd also recommend Spoon.
I hear great things about brunch at both coca cafe in Lawrenceville, and Eleven's brunch is supposed to be killer as well.
I really like the Carlton, it's one of my favorites downtown. Nine on Nine is a nice choice also, but if you are here on a nice evening, why not go to Monterey Bay on Mount Washington? The seafood is pretty good, and the view is fantastic! You wouldn't be able to walk, but it's a very short ride.
