Here's a thought I had about The NoMad (the one on Broadway, not the one on Second Ave.).
I'm eager to return there on a date (in fact, I've already made plans to).
But I can't imagine dropping in there to grab some food at the bar by myself. Not just because the bar area seems so uncomfortable. And not because of the expense -- I have no problem dropping into the bars or lounges at per se, Le B, Marea, etc. alone.
It's because this food, good as it is, just doesn't seem interesting enough to eat by yourself. It's mainly good as a kind of food to share with people who otherwise complain about the weird places you take them to.
