Recommendations for a woman dining alone in NYC (preferably at the bar)?

Wow--thank you for all the excellent recommendations! My mouth starts to water every time I research a new one. Since I am heading out in the prime time dinner rush on Saturday night, I may head downtown and arm myself with a list of spots, cruise by each one and see how crowded they each are. I feel spoiled for choice by all the expertise here on the Chow site.

Yes, I saw some of the other threads for dining at the bar. I just thought there might be some specific suggestions for a woman alone, or, as you say, a dining group. Maybe I should start one!

Thank you. Curiously, those are the first two that came to mind when I was thinking about this for myself. I haven't eaten at either (yet). Is there an optimal time to get to these restaurants if you want to dine at the bar?

I am sure I will get into the swing of it eventually. It's more that I only have a few nights each month when I am on my own and don't want to waste an opportunity to go somewhere fabulous.

I am in a position to rekindle my love affair with NYC restaurants after an absence of many years. I am hoping to do a regular "tour" of excellent restaurants but am, quite frankly, intimidated at the idea of being "the woman eating alone at the bar". Does anyone have any good experience and recommendations in this regard? Are there any fun dining groups that maybe I could join?

BTW I am really not looking for a "pickup spot", just a good atmosphere and a great meal. Any advice is appreciated!

Thanks!
