Going to be in town for a convention in a few weeks, staying at the Hilton Riverside. I have to work and won't be out to all hours.
What places within walking distance (which for me would mean anywhere in the CBD, FQ or warehouse districts) have a good bar situation where I can come in, sit down, read my stuff for the next day, eat quickly and get out?
Is Cobalt an option? Never been.
I love Mr. B's but I think it would be too loud for a working dinner. Same for the Palace Cafe.
Rib Room would probably let me read in peace but I'm looking for something more in Cuisine.
Grill Room? Always thought it was a bad value.
