In a thread about a mediocre restaurant, a poster noted that it was a hangout for solo diners. This may have been an observation about the number of singles, or perhaps a more sinister claim that singles don't deserve much better.
Clearly I opt for the former, but it got me to thinking, where are good restaurants for the solo diners? I keep my eyes and ears out for bar service (a boon for the solo diner) but would love suggestions from the hounds for good places for solo dining, particularly in the outer boroughs.
How is Cocotte's bar area? Has anyone eaten at the bar at Stone Park? Is there a bar at Stone Park or is it just my fantasy?
