Westlake (Cleveland close)


One Walnut (216) 575-1111; 1 Walnut Avenue; Cleveland, Ohio

Amenities: One Walnut has honed to perfection the hospitable nature of their special events so much so, they're termed "Hospitality" events. Solo guests are specially pampered. At a recent event, one solo diner, known for a love of good wine, will be seated at a table which will include wine vendors. Another, an unabashed "foodie," will be seated with representatives from the media.

The "solo diner-friendly" flavor of special events apparently has cast a spell beyond special occasions. Solo diners walk-ins and concierge-directed enjoy raised banquette seating, as well as a seat at the bar (12 seats).

Cuisine: American Classic/Eclectic

Neighborhood: Financial District off East 9th

Cabin Club (440) 899-7111; 30651 Detroit Road; Westlake, Ohio

Amenities: Female business traveler alert! Steak house wants to roll out the red carpet for YOU!

Currently, throngs of solo business travelers travelers appear for both lunch and dinner, but they're mostly male. Management, desiring a more balanced ratio, wants it known that cigar smoking is banned and female golfers from nearbye golf courses regularly frequent the restaurant for lunch.

A 15 seat bar sports dining set-ups at mid-day and bar keeps dedicated to getting their customers fed throughout the day. (Evenings, a few solos indulge in solitary dining in the restaurant proper.)

Cuisine: Steak House

Neighborhood: 20 minutes from Cleveland
