Good food at the bar?

I will be by myself for a few nights staying at the Sheraton downtown. Any suggestions where I might be able to eat some good food (any type or price range) while sitting at the bar? Thanks.

      I would second (or third) any of the above -- especially Palace or Quinn's. Palace can be a hard place to find a seat, Quinn's isn't too bad except on the weekend.

      Maybe 10 minute walk away on 2nd Ave is Kushi Bar for Izakaya (Japanese bar food) and can be a fun scene. Also, I like the Virginia Inn (upscale bar food) and Le Pichet (French), both by the market at 1st / Virginia -- though Le Pichet is maybe a bit of a date place.

      Sazerac in the HOtel MOnaco has unique Louisiana-style food at the bar and fun atmosphere...and Earth & Ocean in the W Hotel has the best french fries w. herbs & garlic in the city IMO and other well-crafted bar food.

        It's a bit of a walk, but Quinn is the best gastropub in town.

          The Palace Kitchen has a great bar for eating solo. Lauren's recommendation of Union is also good. Matt's in the Market and Steelhead Diner also have good bars for solo dining.

            Union (1st and Union - just a few blocks from the Sheraton) has a great bar menu.
