Dining at the bar in Las Vegas
It looks like some people are already planning on places to eat in Vegas for Comdex. Since I'm going alone, is there any places that are single-diner friendly, perhaps dining at the bar? Somewhere with a good wine list, but not necessarily phone-book sized. Not snobby or too dark and romantic. I don't think buffets are considered single-friendly, if you get up for seconds, someone is liken to clean up your table and give it away! Thanks.
On the contrary, there is probably no single-diner-friendly city in the U.S. than Las Vegas. Every restaurant in the city is used to serving single diners (they serve many solo gamblers, including high rollers). I wouldn't worry about it at all.
Of the high end places, Nobu and Aureole are two places with bars that are particularly welcoming, but frankly I would just choose the places you would visit if you weren't alone.
And on the contrary, buffets are extremely single-friendly (and a great place for people-watching, even if usually less-than-optimum places to find delicious food).
re: Dave Feldman
Dave is right. I've been everywhere from Napa to Lotus of Siam, Nobu to Aureole, Picasso to Renoir to Drai's to Le Cirque as a solo diner, and I've never had even a ghost of a problem.
If you do need to get off the Strip, though, and unlike Mr. Feldman you don't see yourself eating at Lotus twice a day for a week, do investigate Las Vegas's one-mall Chinatown, on Spring Mountain Road about five minutes from the Strip. Kim Tar is a great Chiu Chow noodleshop, and the Shanghainese place is as good as anything in Manhattan's Chinatown.
