January in New York is cold, but that is no excuse to not get out there and meet someone new! Here are some of my picks for restaurants and bars with fireplaces to keep you warm while you socialize with others or when you take that special someone for a romantic night out.
- Top Of The Standard Hotel. In the colder months, hit the top of the Standard at sunset for the ultimate cozy experience with live jazz music, small plates, specialty cocktails and a large fireplace in the corner. Located 848 Washington St., Manhattan.
2. La Lanterna Di Vittorio. Let sparks fly at this Italian cafe in a Greenwich Village townhouse. There are tables by the fireplaces where you can sit and enjoy a plate of homemade Tiramisu. The vibe, warmth and food at this cafe are sure to woo your significant other. Located 129 Macdougal St, New York, NY 10012.
3. The Waverly Inn. Check out this clubby, intimate, hotspot on a West village side street, which offers a cozy fireplace-accented setting for dining on elevated comfort fare, like truffled mac and cheese. The food is served in red booths nestled into two attached townhouses. Located on 16 Bank st.
