Dining solo in/near West Hollywood

Staying in West Hollywood for the night and looking for a fabulous meal nearby.

Love the idea of dining at the bar, with a bit of atmosphere/energy.

Not interested in Italian, but open to any other cuisine.

Money not an issue!

  1. Connie & Ted's has a nice dinning bar and great seafood.
    Animal has a small bar and is a meat lovers dream.
    Son of a Gun (seafood and more) has communal tables for solo dinners (from the same chef's as Animal).
    Welcome to LA.

        Come on mr. Thor.

        I Really really really don't want my joint overrun.

        Thank you very much.

            Tanas is your joint too?

            Well, excuse me.

            How come it's your joint? :)

                a second vote for Matsuhisa, Nobu's very first restaurant (some of the more inventive dishes are not from the sushi bar). They do have a very good tasting menu.

                1. re: wienermobile

                  At Matsuhisa,, try the New Style Sashimi.

                  1. re: wienermobile

                    Only in the tempura bar?

                    I still have to try that and plow through a myriad number of toro tartares.

                    1. re: kevin

                      I love sog but just not very comfortable there. I guess that's the new foodie thing but I like a little more elbow room. Damn the food is good tho. The hush puppies w maple butter and some amazing ham is dynamite. Same w oysters.

                    2. re: jessejames

                      Add bar at mastros. Second floor w piano man band.

                    3. Son of a Gun, no question. Besides great food, it has a long communal table you might like in addition to the bar.

                        The communal table at SOG is apparently no more but there are regular tables now set aside for walk-ins:
