pittsburgh isn't the best town for falafel, but my favorite is kassab's on the south side.

oh and for the person asking about salt of the earth - that place is seriously excellent. it's definitely expensive, but it's not that bad compared to places with food of comparable quality/fanciness. and it's an experience eating there - you can reserve a private table upstairs but there are also unreservable long shared tables downstairs and a counter that faces directly into the open kitchen which is really fun.

another really nice and romantic restaurant, if not a new one, is the hyeholde which is in moon, i think. somewhere out by the airport. the dining room is beautiful, in a castle-style building, and they can also make you a picnic to eat on their grounds.

I don't know if this counts as newer at this point, but I'd suggest Tamari is a nice place for a romantic dinner.

I'd also recommend the aforementioned Elements, if you are into sharing food--you could make a very romantic meal out of selections from their charcuterie and candy menus.

I agree, alot of places have the falafel "discs" that were prepared before hand and reheated. Disappointing to say the least. Sababa's has decent falafel and the Alladin's locations aren't bad either. I really like that strong chick pea flavor which is tough to find.

Thanks, I saw that. I am into making kielbassa, summer sausage, jerky, etc. so that sounded interesting; my wife isn't into it so much.

I emailed her some of the menus (elements, salt, spoon) and I'll let her choose.

Tamari definitely looks like a place I want to check out as well, but not liking sushi or shellfish, the menu will be a little limited for her. We may go on another "babysitter" night though.

Nice article overall, but it somewhat suggested that such places in Pittsburgh were uncommon (a claim echoed by a commentator), which is very much untrue at this point. We do not have the same limited restaurant scene of 20--or even 10 or 5--years ago these days, and new places are being added to the list all the time (literally--we have a list of places we want to try, and it keeps growing faster than we can find times to dine out).

I don't know that I'd ever think to recommend the Bettis Grille to an out-of-towner trying to eat good in Pittsburgh.

The food is generic upscale grill, but the location/view is in fact excellent. It is unfortunate that none of the places along the river there are really worth recommending for the food (although Rivertowne at least has local beer).
