I am staying in NYC for a couple months for work, and would appreciate good restaurants where I can order dinner at the bar, as I am usually by myself, or maybe have someone join me. The West Village is most convenient for me, but I am open to surrounding areas. Places that I have eaten and my own rating with 10 being perfect: Little Owl (9), Pearl Oyster Bar (8), Fatty Crab (5), Lupa (8), Snack Taverna (8), Cafe de Bruxelles (7), Buenos Aires (8), Tomoe Sushi (8), Rocco's (7). I enjoy all good cuisine, and try to stay around $45 all inclusive most of the time, maybe $60 once in a while.
Thanks much in advance,
