I've never gone to dinner in Pittsburgh anywhere really. I don't really have a preference for type of food but something decent but not too expensive. Thanks.
NOLA in Market Square is wonderful.
That it is.
I'd recommend reservations. I got a group of 11 going Saturday before the Clapton show and when I called, they were pretty close to being booked.
NOLA is not inexpensive for dinner...
Not many places that are both inexpensive and not burger joints. Braddock's in the Renaissance is ok and not particularly pricey, but not the best place I ever ate. If you like Thai, Lemongrass Cafe is pretty good. If you are interested in appetizers/tapas, Bossa Nova has a small menu and is a great place for a drink but is a hike, Olive or Twist is a great little spot that is nearby.
If burgers are ok... Winghart's could ruin you for any other burger. The guy is a butcher & Shipwreck hand selects the booze. Nothing else like it.
