One Japanese restaurant has a semi-awkward yet totally adorable solution for all your table-for-one woes.
The Moomin Caf in Japan seats solo diners with cuddly stuffed animals to make the experience of dining alone a little less lonely, Sure, the stuffies might not be the greatest conversationalists, but they have to be better listeners than your last date. The cafs are themed around The Moomins, a Swedish-Finnish book and animated series about a family of friendly hippo-esque critters. Each location features food, drink and decor inspired by the whimsical franchise, but the main draw is clearly the option to dine with a wide-eyed Moomin of your own.

If I'm eating alone I prefer eating at the bar and usually read my book. Sitting at a table by yourself seems really awkward especially with the empty chair across from you. If you sit at the bar sometimes another single person will come in and you can be buddies for the evening.
