What's a good restaurant where we can eat at the bar?

My friend and I really enjoy just sitting at the bar and having a few cocktails with some food at the bar. We enjoy dining at the restaurants too but sometimes it is nice to just chill at the bar and eat. Some of the places that we've tried so far and really like are Junoon, Aquagrill, Gramercy Tavern, Solera and Tamarind. Any other suggestions?

Our budget is about 100-150 per person before taxes and we typically have about two or three cocktails.

We prefer places that we can just walk in and not require reservations or have to wait a long time to be seated. We also have a slight preference for quieter places with an older crowd but that is not a deal breaker at all.

We typically try to avoid peak dinner times (6-8PM?) and try to go after 9 or as early as 5 or even for brunch.
