I have to put in my two cents.
First, there are some who consider the Oyster House fish sandwiches to be the best in town. This includes not only Kenny Joe, but many of his irregular lunch companions. If you wanna try one, don’t wait untl Sunday, because it will be closed, like almost everything else downtown.
With respect to hotels, the Renaissance is far and away the best, especially if you’re going to PNC Park. For the money, the Wm Penn is usually a better deal, though.
