Best of Extra: Eating at the bar

It can be relaxing to sit at the bar and have a drink and a quick bite to eat. But some bars are simply better equipped for a meal than others. Mike & Charlie's at Harrah's Casino gets our official nod this year, while our readers chose the Record Bar. But Pitch readers clearly spend a lot of time eating at bars, because there were lots of worthy contenders in this category.

Some are considered restaurants first, while others are clearly bars -- but all of them are fine places to pull up a stool and chow down. Below, in no particular order, are the Top 9 runners-up for places to eat a bar: 

Blanc Burgers & Bottles -- If there's a seat at the bar, take it -- those alcoholic milkshakes will be that much closer.  

Tanner's Bar & Grill -- The grill in the "bar and grill" is often an afterthought, but Tanner's is the kind where you're as likely to grab lunch as a drink. 
 

Harry's Bar & Tables -- We recommend the goat cheese dish. 


Westport Flea Market -- Sit here and eat with both elbows up on the counter. Lean forward to keep the drippings on your plate and off your shirt. 


Boozefish Wine Bar -- You're close to your neighbor, so enjoy the people-watching over small plates or a full dinner. 


The Peanut -- If you've ordered the spicy chicken wings, you don't want to have to wait too long for a refill on your beer. Sit by the taps.


McCoy's Public House -- An order of their crackling macaroni and cheese or oversized pretzel sticks is as filling as their current stout or dark brew offering.

Diamond Joe's -- A meal with a view. The kitchen's open until 11 p.m.


Stroud's -- As one reader explained, "It's a restaurant, but I always eat at their bar." On a crowded weekend night, that sounds like the right strategy.
