The holidays can be a little depressing for those who aren't around their loved ones, but being alone is never easy. There's a new website on the web aiming to at least make eating alone a little easier. SoloDining keeps tabs on the best restaurants in the US to eat at alone and tells you what makes them worth your while when you've got no one to go dutch with-
The SoloDining.com web site is chockfull of strategies and tips on how to increase your comfort and options as a solo/single diner, plus need-to-know information for anyone considering solo/single travel.
You'll get the scoop on notable solo-friendly restaurants across the United States and beyond. And while discovering what's out there, you'll learn what to look for and, "just as important," what solo dining amenities to suggest to your favorite restaurants. (Some need a bit of coaching about what solo diners want and love to receive from restaurants!)
The Washington Post also ran a story this week detailing the kind of hoops (half-bottles of wine and laptops to borrow for lunch, to name but a few) restaurants will jump through in order to cater to their guests eating by their lonesome because "They drink more, they eat more."
