Places to eat,within walking distance of Holiday Inn

Are there any places to eat near Holiday Inn Pittsburgh, preferably within walking distance, apart from those restaurants in the hotel?

Thanks!

As there are many Holiday Inns in the area (just doing a casual quick search I came up with 15), at which hotel will you be staying?

There are a number of restaurants of all types - and while all are within walking distance, some may be a longer walk than just around the corner. The hotel is a few blocks back from the crowded Pitt campus mess.

If you do a Googlemaps search, coming from the hotel, head to Fifth Ave (you won't be able to miss the Cathedral of Learning). At that point you have to go around the Cathedral block - either right towards S Craig Street or left towards Bigelow Blvd or Bouquet St to then head to Forbes Avenue.

On S Craig Street, I have eaten at both Lucca(American/Continental/upscale) and the Union Grill, casual neighborhood restaurant/bar with great sandwiches)

To the left which once you get past the Cathedral and then down another block to Forbes you will find a wide variety of everything - from fast food to casual dining. My all time favorite place is a little over half a mile - not real far but a good walk, - Spice Island Tea House on Atwood St. You would never go in just walking by as it looks quite sketchy from the outside, but the food is excellent ( a Thai/Burmese menu)

We like Lulu's Noodles on Craig Street...an easy walk from the Holiday Inn. Cheap and tasty Asian fare. I always see lots of ethnic students eating there too.

We are very fond of "Bridges," the in-house restaurant at the Holiday Inn University Center. Especially their Sunday Brunch is delicious and offers a good value. Service and setting are excellent, too.
