27 NYC Restaurants Offering Cozy, Heated Outdoor Dining

Restaurants are back to keeping diners warm while eating outdoors this fall

Heated outdoor dining is off to a slower start this season, due to the return of indoor dining for vaccinated New Yorkers and news that the temporary measure allowing restaurants to use propane heaters will not be returning. Still, there are plenty of reasons to choose to eat outdoors — for the latest guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, see below — and more restaurants are equipping their dining structures with natural gas and electric heaters.

Some, like Dr. Clark in Chinatown and Cote in the Flatiron District, have outfitted their setups with heated tables, while others — Osamil, Wu’s Wonton King, and Olmsted — are using the overhead electric heaters that warmed their structures last year. As temperatures drop, this list of restaurants offering heated outdoor dining will only continue to grow. If there’s a restaurant that we missed in your neighborhood, let us know at tips@eater.com.

Health experts consider dining out to be a high-risk activity for the unvaccinated; the latest data about the delta variant indicates that it may pose a low-to-moderate risk for the vaccinated, especially in areas with substantial transmission. The latest CDC guidance is here; find a COVID-19 vaccination site here.
