How To Dine Solo Casually At Upscale Restaurants?

Dio Seijuro | Jan 11, 2008 12:17 PM

This is a problem I've been trying to solve for a long time now.

I usually go out to eat by myself and I like to eat with a casual, comfortable attitude. But I also like to go and try all different places the city has to offer. This includes a lot of places that really don't feel very casual.

But I like the food. I want to go to these places and just order something small and eat casually. The problem is I don't feel very comfortable doing that. It feels like I am expected to spend a lot or the server gets scornful. Maybe I can always try to sit at the bar?

Anybody else have this problem?
