And that means cozy sweaters, Hunter boots, and brunch anywhere you can find a fireplace.
I gave Andrea at BrunchCritic a ring to find out her top picks for Cozy Winter Brunch Spots in NYC, and these were her top five:
Tiny's (Tribeca): In Tribeca, the land of enormous, loft-like spaces, Tiny's is an adorable miniature spot with a fireplace to be reckoned with. A perfect place for a romantic date during the chilly months.
The Cupping Room (SoHo, pictured above): Not many places in NYC can say that they've been around for over thirty years, but the Cupping Room is one of them. It's not too tiny - so you can bring some friends - and comes complete with great, jazzy tunes, a fireplace, brick walls, and local art peppered around the dining room.
Le Barricou (Williamsburg): Enter through the swingin' bar and head towards the dining room in the back. After your meal, linger with your cup of coffee on the couches near the fireplace - it's a perfect place to spend a lazy, snowy day.
Nook (Hell's Kitchen): The name says it all. Snuggled into a tiny space on 9th Avenue, Nook's a place you have to try at least once, if only to cross this quintessentially cute spot off your must-brunch list. And as a bonus, it's also BYOB.
King's Carriage House (Upper East Side): This place isn't your typical brunch spot - it's a unique, elegant space that's perfect for the days when you're feeling a little extra fancy...and yet not looking to lay out too much money. Housed in a slim 3-story townhouse, it has an upscale New England feel and offers an $18.95 prix fixe (2 courses).
