best place for solo meal saturday evening?

pcsanwald | Sep 21, 2010 11:17 AM

wife is out of town, thinking it would be nice to go someplace where I could sit at the bar, drink a beer, read a book, and have a nice meal, without feeling rushed. I think what I'm after is a "gastropub". places I have been considering:

spotted pig - I eat earlier than most people, but don't know how realistic this would be on a saturday.
molly's - I hear they have a good pint and the food is good. they probably wouldn't be too crowded.
joseph leonard - I have eaten here and really like the food, but again, might be too crowded.

any other recommendations along these lines? price is not really an object, I don't think I'll max out my budget at the type of place I'm looking for.

thanks for your help!
