Hi all - I'll be visiting Pittsburgh this week, for only the second time ever, despite living just across the state in Philadelphia.
I will be dining solo this Wednesday evening, and am looking for reasonably priced (entrees in the $15-22 range, or less) good food at a restaurant only found in Pittsburgh. I love all cuisine, but am especially partial to Italian, "farm to table" American, and Thai. I also love a place with great comfort food and character (a la "Diners Drive Ins and Dives")! Bonus points for somewhere I can get a nice glass of wine or a craft beer, and no one will look at me funny for dining alone (serving full menu at the bar is a plus).
I'll be staying at the Hilton Garden Inn Pittsburgh University Place (3454 Forbes Avenue), and would love a place within walking distance. However, I will have a car, and am willing to drive ~15 minutes for a great meal!
