Upscale in Pittsburgh for Parental Visit

mhoffman | Oct 14, 2006 03:20 AM

My dad is coming to town for one night, and I want to go somewhere my girlfriend and can't afford on our student budget. Here are the catches:

-It's going to be a Monday night, which rules out a lot of places (including Laforet which had been my first choice).
-No Big Burrito. I went to Eleven with my mom and it really turned me off. It had a trying-too-hard pseudo-semi-hipness and mediocre execution in the kitchen and the front of the house. Food wasn't terrible, but I don't want to go through that again.

So what I'm really looking for is a place that doesn't pretend it's in New York, but has excellent, thoughtful cuisine in a comfortable atmosphere with professional service. Is this too much to ask from Pittsburgh?
