for all you hounds out there, where do you go when you want to sit at the bar and have a good bite to eat? sometimes, i make last minute plans with a friend and have a hard time snagging a reservation. maybe i'm dining solo. or i have plans to stay out late and can't risk going into a food coma. sometimes i'm just craving dessert and wouldn't mind a nice glass of wine to accompany it. i'm open to all your suggestions...please tell me what you order!

          I LOVE the bar menu at Lucques! If you go after 9:30 on weekdays and 10 on weekends, they also offer steak frites, spaghetti carbonara, an herb and cheese omelette, and an utterly delicious grilled cheese sandwich--all of which are MUCH cheaper than the items on the regular menu ($11-$16 compared to the high 20s and beyond). They also currently have a delicious seasonal cocktail called Celerity which has vodka and fresh nectarine puree! I could go there all the time!
