Smaller portion size options?

Running errands, I found myself outside one of the city's most noted steakhouses last night and it smelled delish, wasn't busy (rain) and I considered popping in and trying it. It's a place I've wanted to experience, but when the boss is in town and paying!

Still, I looked at the menu and pretty much all the offerings were huge. Big, pricey and probably perfectly well valued pieces of meat, no doubt. But I wasn't in the mood for that level of commitment!

There are times when I can eat whatever is in front of me, but usually I'm more of a grazer on most days... little meals/snacks rather than 2-3 big meals. I'm also more a fan of variety... like a bento box or Korean meal with a bunch of small, contrasting bites. Eating 24+ ounces of anything, usually, means I grow less appreciative of the food each bite.

So it got me wondering... are there places that serve up higher quality fare, but in a portion size that is attractive to a single diner/budget watcher/lighter-meal type of foodie?

Thanks, Jon
