Solo Hound in Manhattan

I will be spending 8 days in the city, staying in Gramercy Park but willing to travel. I'm on my own. Would be interested in recs for good places for single diners. When alone, I like eating at the bar where possible. I eat anything and everything.

      Ethnic foods especially, though not exclusively--Asian, Italian, African, South American. A variety of price ranges--I'll probably do one or two splurges but would be interested in more reasonable places as well. Thanks.
