Is it just me, or is the eating at the bar business ruining the experience?
It used to be theat the occasional solo diner might eat there, but now...it is the "groovy" place to sit.
Of course this means that you get jammed standing in a corner while waiting for your table (and how dare you think of relaxing with a cocktail at the bar before or after your meal!!!) And get nasty looks from everyone concerned if you try and order a drink while you wait because you of course are disturbing the diners' meals.
It's a BAR. Give it back to the drinkers already
