Pittsburgh: Sunday brunch and Saturday lunch
Saturday lunch suggestions:
Peruse the Strip District shops (Penn Ave between 25-ish & 16th), and try:
-Eleven for upscale dining (balcony & sidewalk seating) - http://www.bigburrito.com/eleven/index.shtml
-Kaya for funky atmosphere, yummy Carribean-inspired food (even if you're not a vegetarian, try the tofu cracklins. dang!), and great cocktails - http://www.bigburrito.com/kaya/
-Roland's (http://www.rolandsseafoodgrill.com/) for the best lobster roll in town--it's not the traditional kind with mayo (but you can get that at Eleven with avocado fries that is fab, too), but it's big hunks of lobster meat grilled with herbs and butter on a giant roll. The atmosphere is okay (the balcony's the way to go), but the beer list and the sandwich are super!
Or, if you're looking for a low-kay afternoon destination, visit the Phipps Conservatory (http://www.phipps.conservatory.org/) in Oakland. Not only it is just an amazing place to spend an afternoon, the cafe there is so good! I had the Thai salad there a couple weeks ago, and can't stop thinking about it.
For Sunday brunch, I like:
-Point Brugge (Belgian) http://www.pointbrugge.com/
-Dozen Bake Shop http://www.dozenbakeshop.com/
Have a great visit!
