Dining well and solo in Paris?

Shep Huntleigh | Dec 5, 2005 07:15 AM

I'll be in Paris between Christmas and New Year's and wonder if anyone can recommend any places where a solo diner would feel comfortable for lunch or dinner. Are there places where you can have a good meal at the bar, for example? Or places where they seat you with other singles? Or just places where singles can feel comfortable dining along? (I'll be with a group but know I'll want to dine alone sometimes.)

My tastes range from very simple and casual, through bistro and brasserie, even a star or two. (For example, in San Francisco recently I had a fine solo meal at Chez Panisse Cafe, where they treat the single diner with very nice care.)

Thanks for any leads.
