Solo Dining Under $100: Must-eat restaurants with bar seating

fishermb | Apr 20, 2008 02:12 PM

Hey all, so here is my situation...I'm a younger (23) male who has no problem going and exploring nice restaurants on my own - I definately prefer bar seating when I do this, though.

Most of my friends, whose paychecks lack as much as mine, however, prefer to grab a bite rather than go out for meals. I on the other hand, just got back from a trip to Barcelona, which I planned after seeing Andrew Zimmern visit La Boqueria on 'Bizarre Foods' surely you can see my problem. I can't afford to go 'all out', but I know there's so many places I'm missing out on because my friends prefer a $12 meal, rather than a $12 glass of wine to go with their meal.

What are some of the must eat restaurants in Manhattan that have full food service at the bar, where ideally I can get out for $100 including tip - yes I wish I could afford more - for an appetizer, main dish, desert and a drink?

I'm willing to travel around the city and the only type of food I really don't like is westernized Chinese food (though I imagine there wasn't going to be too many suggestions for that anyways). Thanks to all for the neverending great recommendations on this board-
