Chef's table in Pittsburgh?
Looking for recommendations on a good, interesting meal in Pittsburgh. Good wine line key, cost not a primary objective. My main client was recently married, and want to take her and her wine-loving husband out to dinner. I'm probably more of a foodie than they are, but they'll go along with me, I'm convinced.
I haven't done much fine dining in PIT, so not quite sure what I'm looking for. I read the review of Eleven's chef's table, but it didn't terribly excite me. I've eaten there 4-5 times and found it good, but not wow. I've eaten at quite a few places downtown, with the probable exception of Nine on Nine (although I walk by
For a point of reference, the new husband loves Lidia's, and is a regular there. Her favorite is Capital Grill. I want to mix them up more than a little bit.

Spoon has a 5 course tasting hat would likely appeal to everyone's tastes. Tamari also offers a Chef's tasting menu.
Given your preferences, I would lean towards Spoon.
I've only been there once, but was amazed at the wine selection at Bar Marco in the Strip. Coupled with a very tasty appetizer and entree list, I really enjoyed my evening there.
