I like dining out on my own and have had meals at both the high end (Eleven Madison Park, and The Modern in NYC; and North 44, among others, in Toronto) and the low (all the time in several places). Yet, I often hear of CHers who don't even like grabbing a bowl of pho alone in a restaurant and, of course, there is always the memory of Elaine and the flounder from Seinfeld.
So, I ask you to explain it to me. Why not dine alone? Do you just not like to, or do you really feel there is a social stigma? Or . . . ?
