Best hotel restaurant/bar for solo dining/drinking

  • 4

Hi all

This is my first post after very many years of lurking. I am looking to book a hotel for one night in October. After many visits to New York from the UK and many amazing meals booked after reading the posts of this board I am back again but with a baby in tow. My husband and I will only be able to leave our room in the evening in shifts and so we are looking to book a hotel that either has a great bar or restaurant for solo diners or is within a block or so of somewhere good. I am reluctant to miss out after past dining experiences in the city and just go for room service somewhere average.

We would prefer to stay somewhere central in maybe Midtown as we are there for such a short time but are flexible. Price is not so much a concern and we like all types of food.

Thanks again for all the help I have received in the past particularly from some of the regulars on here.

ps - I did already do a search on solo dining and will definitely consider a hotel close to some of the best restaurant recommendations.

  1. If "price is not so much a concern," you could to the Mandarin Oriental and then take the elevator downstairs to the lounge at Per Se. Other places for a good meal inside a hotel "somewhere central" include Ma Peche and Ai Fiori.

      1. Thanks very much both of you - much appreciated. Ma Peche (despite some dodgy reviews) and Maialino and their accompaning hotels both sound perfect for what I was after.
