There are three of us traveling to Pittsburgh from DC for the first time next weekend. It is going to be a really quick trip - just one night. We're hoping to hit up Primanti's for lunch as that seems to be the Pittsburgh thing to do, but we're stuck on where to eat dinner. I've surfed these boards and it seems to come down to these four restaurants: Cioppino, Six Penn, Eleven, and Lidia's. Are there any strong reasons why we should go to one over the other? Have we completely missed a really great place? Is there something new getting great reviews?
The three of us love top notch food, we're not concerned about price for this meal, and we have one vegetarian in the group. In DC, we like to frequent the trendier upscale restaurants but also have fondness for the classics/ price fixed menus etc.
We're staying at the Omni, but don't mind traveling to other parts of the city.
