Andaluca - Mayflower Park Hotel — (206) 382-6999; 407
Olive Way, Seattle, Washington
Amenities: Some solo business travelers opt for dining at the six stool bar where the full menu is available. But
those in the know who prefer their own turf for a meal, reserve the little booth (perfect for solo diners!) or
one of the small tables before the windows in the front of the restaurant.
Cuisine: Fresh, seasonal Northwest cuisine, influenced
by the tastes and flavors of the Mediterranean
Neighborhood: Heart of the city
Brasa — (206) 728-4220; 2107 Third Avenue, Seattle, Washington.
Amenities: You can characterize some communal tables as places where people "do their own thing."
They may be sharing a table, but each person seems to be an island, lost in a book or in thoughts. Not so at this
The locals, businessmen and women, who elect to sit at this bar-height table (Some solos opt for dining in
the lounge or at a table in the dining room area.) invariably interact. Perhaps it's because this communal
table is "happening."
It's almost always available– 95%– to solos and to anyone who enjoys serendipity and networking; the staff always
alerts guests to its availability; and it's known for being the site of the infamous "Celebrity Night"
when a celebrated guest adds extra luster and excitement. Prized, invitations for this event are much sought after.
