I’ll be taking a trip to New York next week. I’ve been there several times, but this will be my first trip alone. It will give me the opportunity to sidestep the touristy stuff, see some sights relevant to my family’s history, and to do something I generally avoid: dine alone.
On previous “lonely guy” trips, I’ve made the mistake of ordering takeout when I should have been out enjoying the local flavor. This time I’m determined to get over my discomfort and sit down for as many meals as possible.
So, I’m open to recommendations, including but not limited to: restaurants with a full menu at the bar, cool diners, and places that are just so damn great I should get over myself and ask for a table for one. Oh, and I’m not at all picky when it comes to cuisine; I love trying new stuff.
So, in essence, what are your favorite places? I’ll be everywhere that’s accessible by subway, and I’m also spending some time in Yonkers.
