I will be dining solo tomorrow and would love to have some recommendations for places that do only ONE great thing on the menu. Places that you go to to specifically for a certain item to satisfy a craving. My reasoning is that I do not want to go to a place with an extensive menu of great items because then it will be too hard for me to choose! I would like to save those type of places for when I go out with a group of people so that I can sample everything. Places like Craft (one of my favorite restaurants) are incredible because of their extensive menus chock full of delicious items, however I feel it is a waste to dine alone in a place like this. There is only so much ONE person can sample alone.
Some places that come to mind in the category of doing ONE good thing especially well would be like Porchetta, Caracas Arepa Bar, Pommes Frites, Katz, Peter Luger or something like that. Cuisine and budget is not an issue. Whether it is a hole in the wall or an upscale place I welcome all input.
I am open to any and all suggestions.... just a place that when you go there you KNOW what you are having before you even look at the menu. At Luger you know its the steak for two, at Katz the pastrami, porchetta.. well you get it.
