I'm coming up north to meet friends this weekend but most of the time will be out exploring by myself. Would like to treat myself to some great meals and stellar restaurants, but hate sitting alone at a table. If there are great places that have bars / counters where solo diners can sit, that would be ideal. Sky is the limit, budget wise -- I want to splurge. Any ideas where I can feel taken care of? I DO NOT want any cheesy pickup place either. And, of course, a great wine list doesn't hurt.
