Pittsburgh experts--dining near Allegheny General

I know it's not a great area of town, but my father's been there for several weeks now, and I'd love to take my mother to dinner somewhere nice, but not too far from the hospital. Also, somewhat casual would be good, too, since you don't usually dress up to spend the day in the hospital.

Price doesn't matter. The only cuisine restrictions are no Japanese or Mexican.

it`s okay around the area as long as it`s not late at night..try Max`s Allegheny Tavern(German food-and excellant-has a seperate dining room from the bar-also on Sunday they have a brunch) on the corner of Suisman and Middle...it`s walkable..go down James St. to Middle(1 or 2 blocks) and walk to you come to Suisman..or the James St. Cafe right down James St.(right out of the parking garage-it`s on James St.)Max`s is the closet...

Just there for the hospital visit. Any info on the area would be greatly appreciated. I understand that the Hampton Inn is the closest hotel. Is that correct? We tried staying at the Visitor's Center once--it was a dump, and we got to pay $90 for the priviledge of staying in that dump.

Ann,

Another lodging option close to Allegheny General is The Priory-A City Inn. It's a 3-minute drive from the hospital and is a European style lovely inn with free cont. breakfast, a garden, wine in the evening, free shuttle to downtown, etc. The last time we stayed there the posted rate was $119 and we got a AAA discount off that. Phone is 412-231-3338.

Thanks for all of the great advice, but I don't need it! My father's getting out of the hospital after several weeks.

But since he'll have to go back from time to time, we'll have to check out those restaurants.
