Dining alone

NYCfoodgirl | Nov 2, 2007 08:47 PM

I travel frequently for business. When I'm in a new city, I always want to try new restaurants, but end up feeling self-conscious about eating by myself. I often end up getting take-out. Are there tips for overcoming this self-consciousness, or otherwise eating well while dining alone?

(I'm in my mid-20s, and I don't think dining solo in a "nice" restaurant is as common.)
