A serious question! I like to be involved in the restaurant as much as time away from the kitchen allows, but this is my worst nightmare! A table for one! Can somone tell me how do you deal with this? A person on their own, do they want to be seated facing other diners so they can maybe strike up a conversation, or is this just an uncomfortable reminder that they are going solo? I try to make time when somone is on their own to go out and talk to them, The usual, "Did you enjoy your meal etc.?" But am I wrong in doing this, ie singleing them out as a person who needs company? Would love to hear how you all deal with this. I have never dined on my own so I am clueless!!
