One Night In Pittsburgh
My Bride and I will be in Pittsburgh for one night ( a Thursday) on our way out to a wedding in April. Any suggestions on a neat hotel/ walkable range restaurant combo we should try? Not terribly interested in asian food but anything else good would be great. Thanks!
Since you don't mention budget, I'll suggest the Omni William Penn, a lovely historic hotel right downtown. You can have a great cocktail in Speakeasy downstairs (it was one, back in the day.) then walk over to Market Square or the Cultural District. Try Meat & Potatoes, Butcher & the Rye, Grit &Grace, Il Pizziaolo, Wingharts, Nine On Nine or Habitat. Lots of choice and range.
The Omni William Penn is a beautiful hotel, but there are not a lot of choices very close. Another suggestion a bit closer is the Courtyard Marriott on Penn Ave, which is in the Theatre District and has several very good restaurants, bars and entertainment close by. Nine on Nine is my favorite, although pricy. Meat and Potatoes is a great gastropub with fantastic food too.
I live in Chicago and travel to Pittsburgh quite a bit (my family is in PA and I got married in Pitt) and Meat and Potatoes is always on my list of must go places! Great gastro pub that can complete with all of the ones here in Chicago. I will be there this month as well and will be heading there and also trying the Butcher and the Rye which looks great as well.
I am also a fan of Eleven. I usually stay at the Omni or the Westin.
I would recommend a walk through the strip for lunch over Burgatory, but that's just me.
