Dinner for one in Midtown (49th St @ 8th Ave)?

DC Chowhound will be heading up to NY tomorrow afternoon for a conference Thursday and Friday. I'll probably be on my own for dinner tomorrow night. I'm staying on West 49th Street, I think near 8th. Is there anything of note to check out in the vicinity, where a solo diner with a good book could enjoy a good meal?

I visit the city fairly regularly but usually stay on the east side. I like pretty much everything; cost isn't really an issue but someplace casual and comfortable would be best if anyone has any ideas.

Thanks in advance!

  1. Marseille, on the corner of 9th Av. & 44th St., is an attractive brasserie with very good French/Mediterranean cuisine. I have seen solo diners sitting at tables there, so it nicely fits your needs. (Note: They also offer bar dining.)

    1. Try Shimizu on 51st between 8th and 9th. Wonderful sushi and one of the nicest places in NYC to dine alone. Enjoy!
