Fine... but what if I don't want to eat at the bar, by the kitchen, in the window or at a communal table? So often as a solo female restaurant-goer, I'm shunted off to the smallest table behind the loo door, 'forgotten' by the wait staff, hustled to finish and leave, or simply denied service altogether... probably on the assumption that I won't order anything but a salad and then leave no gratuity. It's tiresome!
