Solo dining Providence

Hello,

I've enjoyed getting some ideas for places to go in Providence from this board, but I haven't seen a thread that addresses where a solo diner would be comfortable. I'll be at the Hilton for work, so I know I can walk to Federal Hill--but there are almost too many choices! I like bar dining if possible, but cafes are good too. Some of the names that have come up on this board are: Siena, Pane e vino, Andinos, Zooma, Mediterrano--any that would fit the bill for me?

And it doesn't have to be Italian! I am open to all foods, except maybe Middle Eastern, cause I can get plenty of that in the Detroit area. I really like a nice cocktail too :)

I won't have a car, so that limits things I know.

    Just wanted to give a belated thanks for the reccs. I had a great time at Tini, Pastiche and Gracies. Just what I needed after a long couple of day of conference-going.

      The food at Local 121 can be hit or miss, but I love their bar and they make the best cocktails in the city, IMO.

        If you don't mind a short cab (or RIPTA bus) ride, I think the bar at La Laiterie in Wayland Sq. would be great.

          Have you thought about Tini? It's only a bar, and it's, well, tiny. But it can be a neat concept. I haven't been, so I can't recommend specifically.
