Restaurant recommendations with counter-height tables

Can anyone recommend some good restaurants (high teens/low twenties for entrees) with bar/counter-height tables? Someone in our party can't sit for long periods (back pain). Since it's for four people, it's harder to just eat at the bar and have a group conversation.

  1. that's a tough one! first thing that comes to mind is Socarrat Paella Bar in Chelsea. They have one long table that runs through the center of the room, as well as one round table four-top at the end. It's a small place and there's not much room to maneuver, so I'm not positive that it's best for your situation. something to consider though.

        1. re: steve h.

          Second Otto. Lots of standing height tables without chairs in the front bar area.

        2. Perbacco has a couple of these, I'm pretty sure: see picture - do they look tall enough?

          1. Graffit on W 69th has counter-height tables in their bar area. Buceo 95 also has counter-height tables. Both serve tapas, although I think Graffit also allows you to order from their regular dinner menu at the bar.
