No shame in eating alone--but some spots are more solo diner-friendly than others! Here's where you may catch me enjoying my meal in solitude.
Old-school charm with heaping portions (and the rare parking lot!) make this spot busy round-the-clock. Stick to traditional Jewish dishes and grab a black & white cookie on your way out.
Aptly named Bliss Cakes will change your life. The fried egg sandwich does the trick if you don't have a sweet tooth.
Delectable fried chicken and sides (try the corn pudding!) at lunch and dinner. Killer brunch too: Try the hearty pulled pork hash...then take a nap.
So much to love, so let me help narrow it down: Go for the crab cakes, lobster roll, or any of the catches of the day. End w/ key lime pie!
Hands down, the best spot to dine on Michigan Ave. Snag a spot outside, let the server guide your wine choice, and save room for soft serve
The kind of sunny shop you could hang at all day! Lots to love, from croissants, fruit tarts, sandwiches, yummy coffee, and homemade jams.
The Bluebird/Webster's Wine Bar crew knows it's wine...but they also cook up some killer grub. Stick to small plates, and try the frog legs if they're on the menu.
Hard to find words to describe how great the sandwiches are here! Menu rotates, but try the meatball if possible. Great deli case for dinner, picnic,etc. Killer burgers on Tuesday nights.
By far the most adorable storefront in the city. Plan to Bring your laptop & stay awhile. Pies are great, of course, but do NOT overlook the buttery biscuits.
Absolutely divine. Sandwiches are top-notch. (Varieties rotate seasonally, but make sure to try whatever type of grilled cheese they've got!) Brunch is killer too. Check out the cute back patio.
