Going to be in town in a couple weeks for a conference, and I'm the only one from my company going. In theory I could meet people at the conference to go out with for meals, but realistically that's not too likely to happen (not outgoing enough). But... I don't want to end up grabbing crummy takeout and scarfing it down in my hotel room either.
So, any suggestions for restaurants downtown/gateway district that are solo-dining friendly? As in, have a bar you can eat at without getting funny looks and still have good food? Or have a casual enough vibe you can sit and read a paper/book while you eat, like coffeehouses and cafes have? As one example, I really want to try Greenhouse Tavern, but it's hard to tell online if that'd be a reasonable place to go solo. I'm pretty open to cuisines, and price levels, and would welcome suggestions for any meal of the day. If you were on your own in this area, where would you go?Edited: 3:55 pm, July 14, 2014
