Hello...I'm going to be in NYC at the end of the week and have Sunday and Monday available for fabulous solo dinners.
I haven't been to Manhattan in about six years, but then I remember liking the following restaurants very much: Babbo, Lupa, Union Pacific, Bouley Bakery, Tabla, Union Square Cafe.
I'm somewhat looking for things I can't really get in SF, and for places that are solo-at-tje-bar dining friendly (which seems like a lot of NYC). Right now I'm thinking of Eleven Madison Park (I missed Humm in SF) and WD-50.
Also, I've never done the solo bar thing before--is it walk-in, or does one make a reservation?
Thanks for any and all tips!
