I was going to say india garden but no spice πŸ™ in Oakland: depending on the type of atmosphere the mad mex is a fun place to bring them to kick back (plus its a chain so the food will compliment anyones taste) Union grill, lulu noodles there are a ton of chain places on the main drags.

I am at a loss the majority of places I can think of around those areas Fall under Indian, Italian, or Asian.

While it’s not in Oakland, there are some great places in Bloomfield, which isn’t very far at all.

I’d call Sausalito and ask about their top floor for a group.  I went there in December and it was wonderful.  It’s also a BYO so you save a good bit of money on wine/beer if you bring your own. 

There’s also Bloomfield Bridge Tavern which is VERY Pittsburgh. 

If that doesn’t work, expanding outside of Oakland still are places like PF Changs in Homestead and Casbah in Shadyside.  I LOVE Casbah and the outside area is really lovely. 

There also a middle eastern place on Craig Street beteen Pitt and CMU (ali baba?) which is pretty good – not spicy, not Italian. 

Lastly, Walnut Grill in Shadyside is not bad at all and is standard American fare

I don’t know… Honestly for a picky eating family I would probably just end up making it really easy on myself and doing potluck. That way they can all bring something they like! Lol!

@sweetie52843:  I think if the weather permitted it, having  a dinner outside would be so lovely there.  I don’t live in PGH anymore but when I did, I often went there for special occasions.  And to Mad Mex for $5 Margaritas for non-special ones πŸ™‚  That spot definitely couldn’t handle a rehearsal dinner, though, so Casbah would be a bit more appropriate!

The new East Liberty Mad Mex (across the street from Casbah) might be able to accommodate a rehearsal dinner. There’s an impressive amount of seating, and I think they might do valet parking during prime times, since finding a spot in that neighborhood is miserable. In Shadyside, my husband and I did a his-side-of-the-family dinner (about 15-20 people) at The Elbow Room, across the street from Harris Grill. I don’t think that would have worked with many more people, but for a group of that size, it worked well.

It’s not in Oakland or Bloomfield… but it might satisfy everyone… What about Ruth Chris Steakhouse in the PPG building downtown?  The other locations that might be fun downtown but not too hard to locate if you have out of town guests would be in Station Square…  Houlihans has some delicious options.

They cater! At least I’m fairly certain they did when I was in college.  Now THAT would be a great thing at a wedding – a Dave and Andy’s bar.  OMG  I want that and I’m already married! πŸ™‚
