Wife and I ate at Cure a few weeks ago and it was really one of the best meals of my life. Just amazing food. Not much in the way of atmosphere and the service could have been a little better but I can't wait for an excuse to go back.

Casbah is my favorite for special occasions. Its not super fancy, but you could definitely go in a suit and not look out of place.

Tamari would be a good choice if you are trying to balance atmosphere and foodie-interest.

I agree with a lot of the above posts. Salt especially.

Also Legume is delicious. Their new Oakland location is very nice.

I've had a lot of great meals in Pittsburgh, but the absolute best was probably at Eleven.

Thanks so much for your recommendations. Salt was not open Christmas-New Years, so we decided to go to Avenue B. Then December 26th's weather was so bad we stayed home (that was anniversary day). A friend recommended a closer place, "Rockwell's Red Lion" in Elizabeth PA, which was infinitiely closer to the little town we stayed at than to the Pittsburgh Places and our baby sitters weren't available until after 7:30! But it turned out that it was Very nice and I'd go again anytime. I was incredibly surprised that such a nice place was hidden away in little Elizabeth PA. It used to be a bank, and was brick and dark wood and beautifully decorated for Christmas.
I can't wait for next year to try some of your Pittsburgh recommendations, especially Salt! And if we hit the lotto, I'd love to take us to the "Ultimate Tasting" at Lautrec! Thanks so much again!

Im a little late but I think Meat & Potatoes would be a great place to take a chef. Its not super expensive but the atmosphere is awesome and the food that Ive had is fantastic. I am from DC and the step daughter of a food distributor and as a result have eaten at some really amazing places and I like Meat & Potatoes as much as any place Ive ever been.

After reading about Legume this week, I would be most inclined to eat there. I haven't been there yet, so this isn't a recommendation, but it is the next "amazing, fanciest" on my list.
