SOLO DINING IN NOLA?
I plan to be in NOLA on business at the end of the month. I have been on several previous occasions but always on holiday with my wife. This time solo.
My husband and I often dine in restaurants and eat at the bar....great fun because you get to meet lots of interesting people and talk to the bartenders. Some of our favorite restaurants to eat at the bar are Emeril's, and Lilette, and for a casual option, Camelia Grill (all bar service).

People dine at the bar at Coquette. And at Bourbon House. But lots of, indeed most, places will happily accommodate a lone diner at a small table. I personally wouldn't want to dine solo at big festive places like Commander's or Galatoire's. But I'd definitely feel comfortable at Herbsaint or Luke, along w/those mentioned by Liz G.
I would recommend Clancy's for a great solo dining experience. Sit at the bar and join in the exuberant and almost "party like" atmosphere. The food is great to boot.
