Alone, hungry, and prefer sitting at the bar.

I have searched the archives, under "solo", but I am wondering if you have recent suggestions? What about The Modern....any good? Babbo?
I'm coming in from the sticks and would like to go some where bright and alive! And delicious!

  1. You have tons of options. You can sit at the bar at any number terrific restaurants: Babbo, Lupa, Union Square Cafe, Grammercy Tavern, the Orchard, Red Cat, Keens, Blue Ribbon, Balthazar, Little Owl, Blaue Gans.

    1. They do a neally nice job of bar dining at the Gotham Bar and Grill. It's not just a plate on the bar, they have these trays that fit in to the groves and they make it a nice experience. i haven't ate at the bar there in a while, but i don't see why they would've stopped.

      1. Veritas on 20th St (across from Gramercy Tavern).

        1. +1 Gotham Bar and Grill. Also, the Bar Steak at Raol's is not to be missed!

          1. Gotham, Veritas, Babbo and I like the bar at Hearth as well.
