Perhaps you've seen some flurries or epic lines outside of your local grocery store. Even if you're buried a cave office with no windows you've probably at least heard that this fair city is going to be blanketed under two feet of snow by sometime tomorrow. Snowy nights can often be the best time to visit a super-hot restaurant. Short lines and a super cozy atmosphere await those who can make it there (and back) safely.
So here's what's open, what's closed, and what is serving spiced wine to those willing to brave the weather. For those who plan to order Seamless, remember that there are no bike messengers allowed out tonight past 11 p.m. Check back regularly for updates. And no matter if you order in or dine out, make sure to tip well tonight, servers and kitchen staff will have to brave the snow to get home.
LAST UPDATE: 7:00 p.m.
