Long time lurker, first time poster here.
I'm a native New Yorker, solo, in my mid 20s and I'm always looking for a good meal whether with a friend or by myself. With that said, I've searched previous posts on solo dining and find them to be a bit outdated, nonetheless useful. I've been to many restaurants in the city with friends and whathaveyou and have many restaurants on my go-to list but I'm a bit intimidated to go by myself. Though I did recently go to Ippudo alone.
I was wondering what places you Chowhounders like? I don't mind spending anywhere between $60-$80 on a meal [including one drink, an appetizer, entree, and dessert]. I'm open to all types of cuisine and anywhere in the city [these feet were made for walkin']. Thanks in advance!
