What's a good restaurant where we can eat at the bar?

Just realized I didn't add this - We usually eat out on weekends - Friday night to early Sunday evening mostly.

Thanks for all the great recs so far!

Yeah - I've heard that about Nougatine as well. Any idea what it's like at Brunch or at like 5pm on a Sunday evening?

We just found out about Lincoln Ristorante's bar about two weeks ago. We went there for brunch a week earlier and loved it so we HAD to go for dinner. That's when we noticed the little bar and now that's on our list of places to check out. Thanks! We haven't been to Marea or Picholine yet.

Sounds perfect. We'll hopefully be able to check this out in the next couple weeks and report back.

That's a lot of awesome suggestions. Good cocktails aren't a requirement but we aren't beer drinkers. As long as there's wine, we'll do just fine.

How hard is it to get seats at Momofuku Ssam? Do we have to have a reservation or can we just walk in and expect to get seated?

The NoMad has excellent cocktails - we were there last week and loved it. We were even invited up to the little private area upstairs so that was exciting.

Louro looks like it could be fun - That's what we enjoy too, order a cocktail and getting a bunch of appetizers and then just eating slowly. We've been known to eat two entrees sometimes because we've been there so long and had gotten hungry again. LOL.

I didn't know Eleven Madison Park had a bar we could eat at! Does one have to get the tasting menu or are there other options in terms of food? Getting a meal is perfect for us but we may not be up for getting the tasting menu every week :).

EMP's website doesn't mention anything about food other than the tasting menu. The cocktails here look amazing - especially the Manhattan cart.

Thanks for the suggestion!

My friend and I really enjoy just sitting at the bar and having a few cocktails with some food at the bar. We enjoy dining at the restaurants too but sometimes it is nice to just chill at the bar and eat. Some of the places that we've tried so far and really like are Junoon, Aquagrill, Gramercy Tavern, Solera and Tamarind. Any other suggestions?

Our budget is about 100-150 per person before taxes and we typically have about two or three cocktails.

We prefer places that we can just walk in and not require reservations or have to wait a long time to be seated. We also have a slight preference for quieter places with an older crowd but that is not a deal breaker at all.

We typically try to avoid peak dinner times (6-8PM?) and try to go after 9 or as early as 5 or even for brunch.
