Restaurants that take bar seating reservations?
I'm looking for restaurants that have bar seating and allow for reservations at those bar seats. An example would be "Degustation" (they're actually bar only).
Ideally it would below 30th. "Extra-ideally" it would be on the west side below 30th. But I'm open to other areas.
Are you interested in sushi bars?
Just read on here that brushstroke has an 8 seat sushi bar now.
I think what you mean is "counter seating" not "seats at the bar" which is usually first come, first served?
Any top tier sushi place will allow you to request the sushi counter (15 East, Yasuda, etc).
Kyo Ya - Chef's counter
Momofuku Ko - all counter seating
Beacon - kitchen counter
Hecho en Dumbo - chef's counter
L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon
Where to watch cooking action from the counter (not all of these let you reserve specifically for those seats)
Atera has the same setup as Degustation, Momofuku Ko, and Brooklyn Fare. I haven't been to Atera yet but It's on my shortlist.
