Good Dining at a Bar?

ciaogina | Nov 26, 200309:57 AM

My question is--where besides Zuni and Hawthorne Lane can you go in this city to graze and water while at a comfortable bar--not a scene type of place.

Last night, "Mr. Gina" and I decided to have a Thanksgiving drink and light fare at Hawthorne Lane. When we arrived they annouced that there was liquor only but no food as they stopped serving at 7:30 (it was 7:45). They were going to be shampooing their rugs.

I just share this as I thought it was odd that a restaurant could close their books for the night during these times. Wouldn't it be better to do it early Sunday morning?

We were calmed by the more than smooth Chopin martinis and sailed down Market to Zuni for some late eats of oysters, salad and shoestrings, and another 'tini.

Any recommendations would be welcome--we're somewhat habitual at 2223 but we think it would be good to broaden our horizons in '04.
