“If you like Thai & Asian cuisine, check out Noodlehead! It's BYOB (and cash only), and the pad thai is some of the best in the city. Cool vibe and fun to visit as a group. Watch out, though - order spice level 1 unless you *really* like spicy food. Even level 2 can be too much. ”

“Funky, fresh take on Mexican food. Big, cool space. Always a scene. Lots of beers on tap with the specialty being Big Azz margaritas which are 22 oz. (in a lot of different flavors, but never made with a cheap mix.) If you're out late, they're on sale after 10 pm. Huge burritos, good wings (try San Francisco.)”

“A handful of some higher-end stores including Sephora, Apple, Banana Republic, etc. This is a great activity for any day you're trying to do a little shopping and/or poke around some cute cafe's and shops, have lunch. Steel Cactus has great food, and the nightlife on Walnut street definitely exists for mostly the young professional crowd and beyond”

“Pamela's is a Pittsburgh staple - there are six around the city! Pamela's is famous for their hotcakes (thin and crispy!) and lyonnaise potatoes. While the Shadyside diner is pretty small (head ten minutes by car to Squirrel Hill for more seating), you can always count on a fantastic and affordable diner breakfast no matter which location you go to. Keep in mind that it's cash only!”

“For date night or celebrating a special occasion, Girasole is a definite hit. Incredible Italian food in a little below-street place and the best tiramisu in Pittsburgh. The owner is usually sitting at the front table drinking wine and welcoming guests. ”
