9 Restaurants Where You Can Have a Cozy Dinner by the Fire

From stately stone fireplaces to miniature ones right on the table.

Crabtree’s Kittle House

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.

The Farmhouse at Bedford Post Inn

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.

Flames Steakhouse

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.


Harvest on Hudson

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.

The Inn at Pound Ridge by Jean-Georges

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.


La Vista

355 Smith Ridge Rd, South Salem; 914.533.2671

Atmosphere is one of the charms at this under-the-radar Italian spot in South Salem, whether it’s old-school tableside presentations by the fire, or cracking open a bottle of wine under a red umbrella in the lush vegetable and herb garden.

1 Station Plz, 914.777.9300

The second restaurant from the owners of Modern in New Rochelle, this location in the Mamaroneck train station has a contemporary Italian menu and tons of character with exposed brick walls, tin ceilings, and an intricate fireplace with a polished wood mantle.


One Twenty One

2 Dingle Ridge Rd, North Salem; 914.669.0121

Located in an antique home with a wraparound porch, the vibe at One Twenty One is, well, homey, from the cozy fireplace to Chef Beck Bolender’s New American comfort food menu.
