It looks like I'll be making several business trips to Pittsburgh in the near future, staying near the Convention Center. I poked through some old threads; the only "musts" I can gather so far are:
-Pamela's for Pancakes
-The Original for dogs and fries
-Primanti Bros for sammiches with fries and slaw on them (I won't forget the camera. I'm not sure I believe people actually do this and I want proof!)
Any other Chowhound winners?
Should I assume that the area around the Convention Center is, in general, un-chow? Can somebody suggest something in the area that's a candidate for "surprise favorite?"
Thanks in advance; I look forward to the visit!
PS - I will NOT have a car, but a moderate cab ride is acceptable.
