I might be taking myself out for dinner this weekend in the U Street/Logan Circle area. Apparently my go-to spot for solo dining in this area (Bar Pilar) is under renovations.
There are so many new restaurants in this part of the city, I was wondering if any stand out as good places for solo diners. I don't mind sitting at the bar, as long as it won't be odd for me to be there and reading a book. Also I'm likely going to be there Saturday night (around 6:30/7pm) so keep that in mind in terms of walk-in ability and crowds.
Some of the new places I've been curious about are Blackbyrd, Pearl Dive, and Bistro La Bonne. Would any of these work for solo dining?
Also note that I'll be at Masa 14 the next morning for brunch so that is out as an option.
