The 6 Best Restaurants for Dining Solo in the City
No reservations required!
While they are a great way to catch up en masse, group dinners often come with a side of struggle. In contrast, dining alone can be pleasant, easy--and downright necessary. You don’t need to worry about anyone’s gluten allergies or all-vegan restaurant requests, you can quite happily catch up on your backlog of Town & Country and you never have to figure out how to split the bill.
Here, our list of six spots in Dallas that make dining alone perfection.
Every seat is a perfect seat at this quaint Parisian spot near Highland Park. With great people-watching and even better lobster rolls, pommes frits and mussels, Le Bilboquet is an obvious choice for dining alone.
Le Bilboquet, 4514 Travis St., #124; 469-730-2937 or lebilboquetdallas.com
Not all coffee bars are equipped for a quick-drip joe on the fly. At Ascension, seat yourself at the communal table, munch on a hand-pressed panini and sip your coffee while perusing the Internet (or working, if you must).
Ascension Coffee, 1621 Oak Lawn Ave.; 214-741-3211 or ascensiondallas.com
Bread Winners Cafe
The Uptown location of Bread Winners is reminiscent of a New Orleans-style home, with cozy nooks and corners to slip into. Sit on the covered patio for a truly unique experience where you’ll get lost in the ivy and foliage.
