The 30 Coziest Restaurants in NYC

Our favorite thing about fall is that it becomes socially acceptable to spend even more time eating and drinking indoors. We’re embracing all things warm and comforting: darker cocktails, chunky sweaters, spicy citrus perfumes. The colder weather makes us want to set up residence at an upstate lodge watching the leaves change in front of a roaring fire with red wine. 

Given that our apartment has a view of another building and the heat hasn’t kicked in yet, we’ll take a cozy ambiance anywhere we can get it. We rounded up the thirty coziest restaurants in New York – because we might not have a fireplace, but they certainly do. Bookmark our list for days when you and your friends text one another saying, “let’s do dinner somewhere cozy!” We guarantee these are almost like a weekend in Berkshires….

Actually taking a weekend away? Lucky you, consult our guide to weekender bags and know what to pack from your medicine cabinet.
