If you’re going to eat sushi while you’re in Pittsburgh, you should be eating it at Chaya. This place serves beautifully assembled nigiri and rolls in a small space that feels a little bit like a bunker, but one we’d be fine getting stuck in for a few days. You’ll find other classics on the menu like udon and tempura, as well as harder-to-find specialties like tako-su (marinated octopus) and hotaruika (raw baby squid). And, if you want a casual way to try a wide range of dishes, you can also call at least two days ahead for a kaiseki reservation.

Pizza Taglio

Pizza Taglio is our favorite BYO spot, but we’d come here for the wood-fired pizzas even if they had a full bar.
