Midtown dinner for one

Traveling last minute to NY for business and staying near 55th and 7th Ave. What is the best meal I can get within walking distance during the week if dining solo.

I know Bar Americain is nearby -- do they have seating available at the bar? Doesn't have to be fancy though -- a good deli will do too (anything besides Carnegie in that area?). Thanks for your quick thoughts.

    1. yakitori toto 55th between 8th and broadway i believe... upstairs

      opens at 5:30pm

      1. Bouchon Bakery in the Time Warner Center...Columbus Circle.

        1. Felidia is a solid dining choice. P.J. Clarke's won't wow your tastebuds but it's an interesting, old school saloon that serves food.

          1. Beacon at 25 West 56th Street (between 5th & 6th) is very welcoming at the bar. When my kitchen was being remodeled I went there several times by myself. You can get a whole meal, or just one of Waldy's fab soups.... whatever you want... Wines by the glass are reasonable and good choices.
