Need a restaurant with a bar so I can watch the kitchen...
Last time I was in NYC I ate at Nougat, Momofuku Noodle Bar, and Tabla.
All had a bar where I could sit and eat and watch the kitchen!!
Im alone travelling and prefer not to go to a stuffy restaurant by myself.
SO...can you suggest a few more places with great food and a bar where I can sit and eat while watching the kitchen.
Im staying midtown - west side.
Many thanks. You guys are great.

Since you've been to Noodle Bar, I highly recommend you try Momofuku Ko. I've dined many times solo at Ko, and have always enjoyed watching the preparation/cooking of some of the most extraordinary food in NYC. You do need a reservation (unlike Noodle Bar).
