Good places to eat alone (esp downtown)?

Polaris | Aug 31, 2001 03:51 PM

I often have to work pretty late in my job, and find that not infrequently my friends don't want to have a 10pm dinner with me.

So the question is: what are some great places to eat alone? Downtown preferred but not required.

Obvious answers include sushi bars and cafes, but that gets a bit tiring after a while.

One favorite option is to eat at the bar of a good restaurant. Before it got too crowded, Gramercy Tavern was a favorite. I'm told Veritas is a good place too, but have never gone.

Another option is places with "community tables". Angelica's Kitchen in the East Village is very friendly, but I can only handle vegan food so often.

Other recommendations?
