Okay, so maybe a trip to France is off the table for a while. You can still skip off to the Central District for an après-ski outdoor experience, because L’Oursin understands our French cravings. Get an isolated patio table for two, fondue with chunks of baguette, housemade pâté, Bayonne ham and cornichons, two glasses of vin chaud, and this season’s most coveted accessory — a personal space heater. Feel like takeout? Its Old Scratch market serves up smash burgers and double thigh fried chicken sandwiches, while a provisions counter has luxe staples like crab rillettes and foie gras terrine, plus wines, spirits, and more.
Dining status: Limited outdoor patio service by reservation only; takeout available.
