Dining solo in Williamsburg
I will be in Williamsburg for business two nights next week and would love some help in choosing dinner places. Based on a search of other threads on this topic, I am thinking Blue Talon Bistro for one night. I eat pretty much anything and would love a casual place with a great wine list.
Thank you in advance for your help!
Thanks - I was intrigued by the Fat Canary, but I thought it would be too formal - great to know I can eat at the bar! Looks like Blue Talon & Fat Canary are going to be the winners.
One more question - any place to get a good cup of coffee in the morning? The "coffee" at the hotel is horrifying...
I go solo to Williamsburg periodically and I usually eat at the Blue Talon or the Fat Canary. I usually eat at the bar and strike up a conversation with others- I get to meet the staff and talk with them too. I usually find it reasonably comfortable and interesting. Blue Talon is a bistro so casual at the bar is acceptable and Fat Canary also has a bistro feel. Also, I find making a reservation difficult since I do not always know I will be ready for dinner.
Try the Greenleafe Cafe:
Their beer and single-malt scotch listing is much more wide-ranging than the wine list, but the wine they do have is carefully chosen. You can check out what they've got on their web site.
I don't live in VA anymore, and I miss this place!
