1. Saturday night dinner for one in Springfield, Illinois. Trying to figure out the "best" restaurant downtown where I can sit at the bar and have a nice dinner. Any cuisine, nice atmosphere, expensive is OK if it's worth it. I've heard that it's easier for solo diners to just get a table. Do they discourage eating at the bar?
2. Same question for Sunday brunch/lunch. Downtown preferred but I will have a car. Again, prefer to sit at the bar.
Thanks for your suggestions!
