Dining tips for Pittsburgh

hi all:

i'm a NYC hound who's coming to Pittsburgh this weekend to check out the city and i have a major job interview on Monday, so i'm obviously considering a move to PGH. i'm not expecting the dining to the the same as NYC, but am hoping that i can find a few good restaurants, some of which i hope to sample this weekend.


life will be empty without Vietnamese -- any Vietnamese that's good?

i'm a total sushi-snob, should i even bother? need impeccibly fresh fish. traditional or fusion is OK. need to have excellent uni. a good fatty tuna, hamachi, etc. preferred. occaisional esoteric optics always appreciated. is there any place that does omakase?

is there authentic Chinese food in Pittsburgh? i don't like americanized Chinese, but love authentic in a variety of styles/provinces: Cantonese, esp. Hong-Kong style, Shanghaiese, real Sichuan, and can't miss Peking Duck.

other seafood?

other Asian?

Mexican? Italian? Turkish? Greek? Middle-Eastern?

any regional or local specialties?

am looking for stuff in all price ranges as general information ... for trying over the weekend, i'll probably only go for the cheap stuff.
