I know that many people are still not comfortable with indoor dining. However, since the cold weather has arrived, that’s left many with the option of doing takeout only. Fortunately, from igloos to outdoor tents with heaters, there are several restaurants offering outdoor dining options. Check out our guide to winter outdoor dining in Westchester County. Please be mindful that you are dining outdoors, so it is recommended that you do dress warmly. As always, please check directly with the restaurant for the most up-to-date information. Please let me know of any other restaurants that can be added to this list! (email: NYFoodieFamily@gmail.com)
