Grad student happy hour, Pittsburgh, early Nov -- help!

Try Sonoma Grille on Penn Ave. If you are staying in the Omni, check out their ad in the Landmarks hotel book (it's in each of the rooms). I'm not for certain, but I think they cater to private parties. They also have great wine and food --- in that order ;). Here's the website that gives some restaurant listings:

Richard Chen - Pittsburgh

Just tried it tonight. I liked it, in fact, we all did. My BF and I went with another couple ordered a couple apps, dinner, dessert, and drinks. It was really good, but I guess it was a bit expensive. Our bill was just over $200 for four people, but it would be less if you just had a main course. Just be careful because they try to up-sell you without telling the costs. For example, they will ask you if you want tap, distilled, or sparkling water, without telling you that there is a price difference. Our waitress did that with our menu items, too. (Though, it might be well worth it to NOT get the tap water. I had sparkling, my BF did not, but when I was finished I also took a sip of his tap water and it tasted awful! Like it just came out of an old hose that I just washed my car with.) Other than that, the atmosphere was nice, service was prompt, and like I said, our food was really good! We will definitely go back again and would recommend it to others. Oh, PS... the lighting was not too bright... not where we sat anyway... maybe they saw this post and quickly changed it ;) Either way, if you go - Enjoy!

Lunch in Pittsburgh

Pamela's is a good suggestion, especially since there are a few locations. Though, you didn't mention if you were looking for dinner or an early brunch? More importantly, which part of the city will you be staying in? That will make a big difference since you probably won't want to drive far. If you are near downtown, a great place to go on Sundays is The Grand Concourse (located in Station Square). They have a fabulous brunch and also a good selection of food for the little ones. This place would be my first pick.
