Best Latte or Cappucino

Some of the best espresso and cappuccino in the city is being served up in Brooklyn. Gimme Coffee in Williamsburg and Cafe Grumpy in Greenpoint. But Cafe Grumpy also has a second shop in Chelsea -- 224 West 20th. Can't vouch for this outpost, but the cappuccinos in Brooklyn are so good that after drinking one, you're spiritually altered and all is right with the world.

Solo Dining . . . tips?

Thanks to all for the input. Though I live in Brooklyn, I'm in Manahattan most days, so am mainly looking for spots there. Although it does seem like a good idea to try a neighborhood place first, where the vibe may be a bit more casual. No one mentioned Gramercy Tavern. I've eaten at the bar there with friends, and it seems like it could possibly be comfortable solo. Maybe going early is the key.

Solo Dining . . . tips?

Hey -- I've never gone in for solo dining, but in an attempt to "get out more" was thinking of giving it a go. Looking to hear from people who dine alone and enjoy it. It seems that the right mindset is needed. I'm afraid I'd feel self-conscious if there's no one to talk to, etc. Tips anyone? Suggestions for particularly conducive, convivial places to try? I'm female, late 30s. Thanks!
