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.

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

    1. 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.

      Palace Kitchen

      Steelhead Diner

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

        1. 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.

          1. These are exactly the suggestions I am looking for. Thanks, and keep 'em coming!

              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.
