I want to treat myself to a nice meal this week, and thought a lunch would be fun. (I have the week off but unfortunately none of my friends do, and I couldn't cajole anyone into visiting me.)
Does anyone know of good spots to eat lunch alone? So far all I've thought of is Momofuku Ssam.
recent threads that contain many suggestions and helpful hints (some lunch-specific, some dinner, but all about dining solo):
when i want i really nice lunch alone, i am prone to thinki sushi.
and when i do, i tend to hit up either shimizu, gari or seki.
maybe i am too ascetic, but i have never mustered up the gumption to eat at yasuda alone. too special.
I've done a couple of solo lunches at Momofuku Ssam. Always satisfied and happy that I chose the restaurant..
go to Katz's its a lot of fun alone or with friends
pastrami on rye, dr brown's cream soda... maybe some fries or a knish
have a ball!
lunch, at the bar, at tia pol can be fun.
tiny place with good food/good wine. the founding pair have moved on but the place, based on my dinner there last week, was worth the trek to 22nd street.
