Chicago solo dinner
Headed for a conference in Chicago, and staying over one extra day for business; in between, time for one great dinner, but I will be solo. Are either Alinea or Aigredoux amenable to solo diners? I know lots of other places where I would be fine by myself, but they are atop my "haven't been there yet" list.
I haven't eaten solo at either place, but I'm quite sure that they would be fine as a solo diner. I tend to dine solo only when I'm out of town, but most nicer places are just fine for parties of one.
Another high-end place worth considering is Avenues, because they have a small counter with a few bar stools facing the kitchen that are perfect for solo diners. (It looks like a bar but I don't want to call it that because they don't use that area for preparing drinks.)
