If there’s one thing that fall invariably brings, it’s the fact that the real cold days are just around the corner, and there’s no turning back till spring. Days are getting shorter, coats longer, and though outdoor dining still has its charms, walking into a particularly warm, buzzing dining room is pretty hard to beat right now.
Luckily for you, we’ve gathered our favorite cozy locales for when the oncoming winter blues hit — with menu highlights of the most comforting things you can order there (you’re welcome, by the way). From dimly lit wine bars where the sherry flows to hideaways that still feel like well-kept secrets, we’ve got you covered. Right this way.
Newly added: Café Rue Dix, Red Hook Tavern, al di la Trattoria, The Commerce Inn, Achilles Heel, Rolo’s, and Foxface Natural.
