Hi, I am visiting from today until Thursday and am looking for some good casual dining where I won't feel to self-conscious eating alone, either at the bar or a table. I am not necessarily looking for fine high end dining but not a dump either. I place most emphasis on the quality of the food but also like a decent atmosphere. I'll be staying near West Belmont & North Broadway and am looking for places local to there for dinner. I like all types of food.
Also, if there is any cool place downtown near that merchandise mart that I absolutely have to try for lunch I'd also welcome those suggestions. I am going to try Blackbird's Prix Fixe lunch. Thanks!
