  1. I love solo dining. at a table, not the bar. My opportunities are limited and the dining landscape has changed in the 12 years since BL-7th grader arrived and my time became less my own. A few weeks ago I tried at Duck Duck Goose but they won’t take reservations for solo diners and refused to seat me without a reservation in an empty dining room. An hour plus later I had eaten mediocre Ethiopian, cried and their dining room was still 75 percent empty. I have another window this Wednesday. I will be in DC, with car. Looking to dine around 6 pm. If you miss Palena and Frank Ruta’s cooking and hospitality, where would you go?
  2. My family decided not to come to Houston with me so I'm on my own for dining. 2 lunches, 2 dinners and 2 breakfasts. I will be at the Hilton-Americas, across from Toyota Center, and I don't want to stray too far--willing to cab for one or two meals but otherwise I'd rather walk. I'm moderately adventurous but can not do hot peppers. Tell me where I should eat. Please. Thanks!
  3. What's good these days in, or within a short cab ride of, Center City for a solo diner? Looking for a place where I can sit at the bar and have a good meal. Any type of cuisine, nothing too outrageously expensive. Thanks!
  4. I swear I've seen ongoing threads on both of these topics, but can't locate them so apologize if I'm in repeats. If one wanted to dine solo on a Sunday, where would you recommend? A place where you'd actually be made to feel well taken care of dining solo would I think be my only requirement. Bonus points if you could bring your own bottle of champagne for a reasonable corkage fee. Additional bonus points (I know I'm reaching here) if you could sit at an open kitchen type of arrangement like the 4x4 bar seats at Rogue 24 or the tasting menu option at Beuchert's. Oh, by Sunday I mean this Sunday so rez needed well in advance won't work. I'm not asking too much, am I?
  5. Up for work for a week. Looking for places I can eat alone, with no reservations. Anything interesting around there?
  6. OK, because of working in education I can't accompany my wife and two sons to the beach for a week in early August. Naturally, I snap into action and plan for at least a stay-over Saturday/ come back Sunday mid-day trip to DC. I'm coming from central VA and will be staying near Courthouse in Arlington. So, despite living and working in the District many years ago and visiting DC with family for the last 10 or so years, this is a rare chance to explore and maybe eat stuff my family doesn't like to eat. Tentative plans are to go to the Standard/Garden District for lunch, wander up and down 14th/U having the occaisional malted beverage, and maybe got to Etto for pizza/snacks. Sunday morning maybe hit Bayou Bakery for breakfast snacks, hit Pupatella for lunch and maybe stop by Mad Fox for a growler on the way back to get the dog out of the kennel before 4 p.m. I don't want anything more than moderate in price (up to $20 entree) and I want casual. Sounds great, right? Having typed that out, it feels too much in my comfort zone. So, various things come to mind. Izakaya Seki. El Chucho. Room 11. Ghibellina. What out there should I push myself towards yet still stay casual and moderately priced on a Saturday?
  7. Hip, elegant, ethnic, hallucinogenic, whatever... Eating alone, will spend money but not a zillion dollars, hotel is in midtown but a location convenient to fine menswear or a decent museum considered. Grazie.
  8. I'm going to Manhattan by myself for the 4th of July (wife and kids are going to visit grandma in Ohio and then going to Indiana to visit more relatives and I have no interest in spending more time this year in Ohio unless I absolutely have to). I plan on doing lunch at 11 Mad Park with my bro and cousin on July 5th but I haven't made firm plans for the 4th. I wanted sushi and Italian but Yasuda and 15 East are both closed. According to Open Table, the best Japanese restaurant that's open is Morimoto, and the best Italian restaurant that's open is Ai Fiori. Ai Fiori is very good and I'm very tempted to go back there, but Babbo is also open and I've never been there. Fatty Crab is also open. Any suggestions on where I should go eat in Manhattan?
