If you're looking for a cute (and warm!) dining destination now that the weather has officially turned cold and the first snow hit the city, consider reserving one of the cozy yurts that have been set up outside of Fairfax, the all-day cafe and bar in Greenwich Village.
Although the fabulous tents aren't anything new, it is the first year that the eatery has decided to operate them on its own (in the past, they've been part of an experiential partnership with American Express).
There are three total yurts on premise and reservations for groups of up to four are available right here (just make sure to select the "yurt dining" option). The best part: diners can order from the spot's a la carte menu, not having to worry about meeting a minimum or indulging in a prix-fixe offering.
Fairfax's sister restaurant, Jolene in NoHo, is also currently operating four heated yurts that you can reserve. Here's a look at those:
The idea to spend some time cocooned inside a cupola-like structure seems to truly resonate with New Yorkers. In addition to Fairfax's and Jolene's yurts, city dwellers can reserve the famous heated igloos at 230 Fifth rooftop, these greenhouses overlooking the East River, domes that look over the Rockefeller Center Tree and these others now open atop the A.R.T. NoMad. It is the unofficial winter of the igloo, clearly.
