With a little over a month to go before winter ends (thankfully), we’re savoring all the warm and cozy New York restaurants while we can. After all, when you step out in below-freezing temperatures it’s either for a fashion show or a world-class meal. So if you love white truffles or a pasta dish that warms you inside out, here are nine warm and cozy restaurants that are worth a winter outing.
Mister French, the Bowery’s newest hotspot by Chef David Burke, is the perfect downtown destination to escape the cold this winter. Diners have a choice here. The eight-seat chef’s counter lets you get up and close to the action while the bar area is great for after-work drinks. Mister French is somewhat known for its craft cocktails, which are captivating and amusing or delicate and floral. There is also a tableside service where cocktails are mixed tableside for a touch of royalty. As for the food, you will find a selection of dishes from Fromage for two to duck waffles and oysters gratinèes. The mains are just as ambitious with a 26.oz lafrieda dry-aged tomahawk, a saint Jacques, which is sea scallops with mussel provencal sauce or flétan with lobster, halibut in a bisque topped with caviar. From Tuesdays at 9 p.m and Fridays at 10:30 p.m, you’ll even find a cheeky burlesque show in the dining room.
