Hello, I love in the area and I find myself going to the same places over and over again. Royale, Mole, Barbone etc. I also have a long list of places I have meant to try and haven't gotten around to (after 4+ years).
Here are some I'm thinking of, which one would you go to (and why)? Feel free to suggest your own favorites. I'll be dining alone and prefer budget (but can do up to $30 for something amazing).
