9 Restaurants Where You Can Have a Cozy Dinner by the Fire
From stately stone fireplaces to miniature ones right on the table.
11 Kittle Rd, Chappaqua; 914.666.8044
A table by the fire at this Chappaqua stalwart has long been considered one of the county’s most romantic reservations (especially with a vintage from the 50,000+ bottle wine cellar). The elegant, farm-sourced menu is cozy, too, with dishes like butternut-squash-and-apple soup, slow-braised grass-fed short ribs, and pan-roasted guinea hen au jus.

954 Old Post Rd, Bedford; 914.234.7800
The cream-colored dining room at this Relais & Chateaux property is exactly the kind of place where you’ll want to linger over lobster risotto or roasted venison on a cold winter evening. When the weather warms up, a cozy outdoor fireplace nook is equally inviting.

121 E Main St, Elmsford; 914.592.3500
The marble fireplace accentuates the retro-steakhouse vibe at Nikolla Vulaj’s Elmsford restaurant, where the menu touches on all the classics from Caesar salad and colossal shrimp cocktail to twin lobster tails and dry-aged porterhouse in sizzling butter, served with special-occasion pomp.
1 River St, Hastings-on-Hudson; 914.478.2800
When the weather’s warm, the best seats at Harvest on Hudson are outside on the charming, landscaped patio with views of the Hudson River. As of a few months ago, winter’s best seats are now at the bar, where you can have your own miniature, modern glass fireplaces right on the table.

258 Westchester Ave, Pound Ridge; 914.764.1400
At celebrated chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s only Westchester restaurant, the luxurious, Asian-inflected farm-to-table menu is the main draw. A close second is the effortlessly rustic-chic décor, complete with four working fireplaces that anchor the spacious dining room.
